“The trout have benefited from the same good natural conditions for growth as the salmon, which has resulted in slightly more fish than expected earlier this year. We see a levelling off in the product mix, and the trend for more new fillet products has translated into the export of more whole fish”, says Frank Isaksen, Chief Analyst at the Norwegian Seafood Council.
