Exports of groundfish including clipfish, salted fish and stockfish totalled NOK 726 million in July.

This is an increase of NOK184 million compared to the same month last year. The volume of groundfish exports in July totalled 28,900 tonnes, an increase of 7,700 tonnes compared to the same month last year. This increase is largely accounted for by clipfish and frozen whole Norwegian Cod and haddock, according to figures from the Norwegian Seafood Export Council.

In July, a total of 6,550 tonnes of clipfish, 2,500 tonnes of Norwegian Cod and 3,500 tonnes of Norwegian Saithe were exported. Never before in the month of July have clipfish exports reached such large volumes. This year to date, exports of Norwegian Saithe clipfish total 25,600 tonnes, which is also a record.

The biggest importer of Norwegian Cod clipfish is Portugal, while the biggest markets for Norwegian Saithe clipfish are the Dominican Republic, Congo and Brazil.
