Norway


Overview

Norway is a major producing country for two marine finfish species assessed by GAPI—Atlantic salmon and Atlantic cod. Together, these accounted for 90% of total marine finfish production in Norway in 2007. Norway’s country score (72) is well above the global country average (59) and ranks as the second-highest score after New Zealand’s. However, the size of Norway’s Atlantic salmon industry (accounting for 21% of total marine finfish production assessed by GAPI) results in significant scale-related impacts. When the scale of production is accounted for, Norway’s cumulative country score drops to 34. Of the four Atlantic salmon-producing countries, Norway is tied for the lead with the UK (72). However, Norway’s Atlantic cod industry underperforms Iceland’s Atlantic cod industry (62 and 69, respectively).
