Fish Farmer - - News -

MARINE Har­vest is to re­sume ex­ports to China in the first or sec­ond quar­ter of 2017 fol­low­ing the nor­mal­i­sa­tion of trade be­tween the coun­tries, ac­cord­ing to Reuters.

CEO Alf-Helge Aarskog said: ‘It’s a mar­ket with great po­ten­tial, so we have high hopes for China.’

He forecast that global salmon sup­ply would rise by about three per cent in 2017, and noted that the price of Nor­we­gian farmed salmon hasn’t hit an up­per limit, de­spite the surges seen in 2016.

Shares in Marine Har­vest rose as much as 2.3 per cent in De­cem­ber, a 13-year high.
