Norwegian Seafood Council

Norge is an abbreviation for The Norwegian Seafood Council.

Norge works with the Norwegian fishing and aquaculture industry to develop markets for Norwegian seafood. Salmon is not sold to direct customers.

The Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) aims to increase the value of Norway's seafood resources. We do this through market knowledge, market development, market risk management and reputational risk management in select markets around the world.

Our headquarters are in Tromsø, Norway, and we have representatives in Sweden (Stockholm), Great Britain (London), Germany (Hamburg), France (Paris), Spain (Madrid), Portugal (Lisbon), Italy (Milan), Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Japan (Tokyo), Singapore (Singapore), China (Shanghai) and the USA (Boston). In addition, we are working to identify opportunities for Norwegian seafood products in both new and established markets.

The Norwegian seafood industry funds the Council's activities through fees levied on all exports of Norwegian seafood.

We have five advisory groups, one for each of the main seafood species or industries: salmon and trout, demersal fish (cod, pollock, haddock, etc.), shrimp and shellfish, conventional products (saltfish, cod, cod) and pelagic products (herring, mackerel, capelin). In addition, three advisory groups have been established: one for the Norwegian domestic market, one for environmental documentation and one for new markets.

The advisory groups include a total of over 70 representatives from the Norwegian seafood industry.
