The African continent is in strong economic growth and the demand for Norwegian seafood has grown substantially the last few years. In 2012 Norway exported seafood to Africa for NOK 1.25 billion. Based on interviews with 16 Norwegian producers/exporters and analysis of Norwegian exports to Africa, the report presents a plan for nine market-based R&D projects in the African seafood market. It is recommended that projects focusing on salmon to South-Africa and clip fish to Angola are initiated immediately. It is also recommended that a project with a focus on Norwegian mackerel to Africa is started during 2014
