'Historic' drop: Norwegian seafood exports plunge in June

Export value has never fallen as steeply as it did last month and can largely be attributed to falling salmon prices.

Salmon accounts for 70 percent of the total value of Norwegian seafood exports, so when the price of fresh whole salmon in June dropped it had major impact on the total value, the Norwegian Seafood Council, headed by CEO Christian Chramer, said.
