Norwegian salmon exports to China down last week, impacted by Easter

Thu 5th April, 2018 3:03pm
OSLO, April 5 (Reuters) - Norway exported 176 tonnes of
fresh salmon to China last week, down from 294 tonnes the
previous week and up from 30 tonnes during the same week a year
ago, data from Seafood Norway showed on Thursday.
    Figures were impacted by the Easter holiday in Norway last
week, which had two days off.
    Norwegian producers see Chinese demand as an important
factor to balance growing global salmon supply.
    Overall export total volumes dropped to 11,469 last week
from 17,778 tonnes in same week a year ago due to Easter.
    Norway's average export price last week stood at 71.78
Norwegian crowns per kilo compared to 62.71 crowns in the same
week of 2017. It was the fifth week in a row that prices were
higher than in the corresponding year-ago week after being below
previous weeks in the year.
    The European Union is by far the biggest export market for
Norwegian salmon, buying 77.5 percent of volumes last week, down
from 81.4 percent the previous week.
    Combined for China and Vietnam, volumes last week dropped 
to 221 tonnes from 679 tonnes in same week last year. 
    Separately, volumes to Hong Kong rose to 274 tonnes last
week from 182 tonnes in same week last year.
