24/07/2014: News Brief - Norway, FAO

News Brief:

The Norwegian Seafood Council reports that “a fantastic winter fishing season has resulted in record exports of cod during the first six months of the year. The value of exports of Norwegian cod, including clipfish, salted fish and dry fish, during the first six months of the year totaled NOK 5.82 billion. This is an increase of NOK 582 million (20%) compared with the first half of 2013.”

Barents sea cod prices are now reported to be stable after they started increasing again in March this year. At the moment, the market is putting pressure on prices of small size fillets because of a lack of fish.

On the European market, the market for wet-salted cod fillets from frozen raw material (Gadus Macrocephalus) is stable.

Consumption of wet-salted cod fillets from fresh raw material (Gadus Morhua) in Italy and Spain is low but is expected to increase again in September as is usual for the season.

The website below includes a great workable chart which will allow you can compare countries based on their production, consumption, etc, of food and which now includes fish/seafood.

The report brings together the commodity, policy and country expertise of both organisations and input from collaborating member countries to provide an annual assessment of prospects for the coming decade of national, regional and global agricultural commodity markets.

Demand for agricultural products is expected to remain firm although expanding at slower rates compared with the past decade. Cereals are still at the core of human diets, but growing incomes, urbanization and changes in eating habits contribute to the transition of diets that are higher in protein, fats and sugar.

There is a special feature on India, prepared in collaboration with analysts associated with the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER), the Department of Agriculture and Cooperation, the Ministry of Agriculture of the Government of India and the FAO Representation in India.
