The export value of fresh fish products has recently received more help from the Norwegian krone exchange rate compared to frozen products. However, Nofima figures show that both categories have been helped by the krone, which continues to be weak. Looking forward, many people predict that the krone will become stronger, and this can have serious consequences for actors who have large inventories of fish stored over long periods of time, such as stockfish and klippfish producers.

Gjermund Vogt at Nofima Mat believes the standardised analytical tools for fish oils are not up to standard for checking the quality of the omega-3 products on the market.

The demand for fish oil rich in omega-3 has long been greater than the supply. Sources that can meet the requirement for omega-3 in the diet of farmed fish have until now been scarce. However, new sources of omega-3 are partly on the market and research shows that these are safe to use in farmed salmon feed.

Previously, Nofima scientists have reported that salmon skin is strengthened if there is enough omega-3 and zinc in their feed. A new report shows that these nutrients also provide an important interaction in the intestines and likely the gills of salmon.
