A stagnation in farmed salmon production globally is expected to fuel a sharp rise in salmon prices.

Next year's global supply of Atlantic salmon will grow a maximum of 2 percent, while salmon prices could increase by as much as 50 percent compared to 2021, according to industry sources.

A 2 percent growth of farmed salmon corresponds to around 60,000 metric tons, which would take next year's levels to around 2.9 million metric tons, according to market research firm Kontali.
