With a reduction in the cod quota, landings of fresh cod in the first quarter were significantly lower than last year. This also resulted in lower export volumes.

For fresh wild cod, the export volume fell by 22 per cent, or 4,400 tonnes, to a total of 15,200 tons, while the value fell 18 per cent, to NOK 994 million.

Lowest export volume in 12 years

"We have to go back to 2012 to find a lower export volume of fresh wild cod in a first quarter," says Seafood Analyst Eivind Hestvik Brækkan with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Fresh farmed cod increased by 6 per cent in volume, or 180 tonnes, to a total of 3,250 tonnes. Export value increased by 23 per cent, to NOK 180 million.

"In terms of value, farmed cod accounted for 15 per cent of fresh cod exports in the first quarter," explains Brækkan.

Highest value growth in Spain

Spain had the largest value growth in the first quarter, with an increase in export value of NOK 38 million, or 32 per cent, compared to the first quarter last year.

Export cod

The export volume to Spain ended at 2,523 tonnes, which is 28 per cent higher than the first quarter last year.

“While both wild and farmed cod increased in volume to Spain in the first quarter, it was wild cod that increased the most, with a volume growth of 47 per cent, to a total of 1,530 tonnes. Farmed cod accounted for 40 per cent of the export value of fresh cod to Spain in the first quarter", says Eivind Hestvik Brækkan.

“The export volume is also significantly higher than in previous years. We must go back to 2020 to find a previous quarter with a higher export volume of skrei," says seafood analyst Eivind Hestvik Brækkan of the Norwegian Seafood Council.
