Aquaculture in Rogaland and Hordaland purchased goods and services for approximately NOK 9.45 billion in 2013. 90% of this was used in Western Norway. An important part of the ripple effects is the activity that is created when the aquaculture industry purchases goods and services.

Almost 2800 full-time equivalent years (abbreviated as “FTEs”) in the two counties, was measured. This figure includes employees working with broodstock, aquaculture sites, slaughter/processing and export. Employees of companies that supply the aquaculture industry are not included.
