Atlantic Salmon


Overview

With 1.43 million mT of production in 2007, Atlantic salmon dominates the global marine finfish industry and comprises over 40% of global marine finfish production. The vast majority of production occurs in the four countries assessed by GAPI—Norway, Chile, UK, and Canada. Similar scores within each producing country—72, 66, 72, and 70, respectively— reflect a relatively mature, consolidated industry that has implemented an economically optimal production model globally. Atlantic salmon’s overall species score (70) is the third–highest of the 20 species assessed.
