Norwegian salmon exports to China excluding Hong Kong fell last week

Thu 8th March, 2018 12:10pm
OSLO, March 8 (Reuters) - Norway exported 222 tonnes of
fresh salmon to China last week, down from 292 tonnes the
previous week and up from zero tonnes during the same week a
year ago, data from Seafood Norway showed on Thursday.
    Norwegian producers see Chinese demand as an important
factor to balance growing global salmon supply.
    Overall export total volumes dropped to 15,228 last week
from 15,814 tonnes in same week a year ago. 
    Norway's average export price last week stood at 65.20
Norwegian crowns per kilo compared to 59.60 crowns in the same
week of 2017 and for the first time this year prices were higher
than in the corresponding year-ago week.
    The European Union is by far the biggest export market for
Norwegian salmon, buying 77.5 percent of volumes last week,
unchanged from the previous week.
    Combined for China and Vietnam, volumes last week dropped 
to 484 tonnes from 606 tonnes in same week last year. 
    Separately, volumes to Hong Kong rose to 420 tonnes last
week from 164 tonnes in same week last year.
