The world now produces more farmed fish than beef – and that’s just the beginning.

Aquaculture is a growing industry all over the world

Norway has one of the world’s largest aquaculture industries. Growth within the Norwegian seafood sector is driven primarily by salmon farming, and Norway produces more than half of the world’s total output.

Increasing industrialization of the aquaculture industry has led to the development of a global sub-sector consisting of suppliers to aquaculture, from producers of fish feed to advanced equipment, technology and service companies. Within the Norwegian seafood industry another important segment is related to harvesting and processing of wild fish.

The Oslo Stock Exchange is the world’s largest exchange for seafood companies. Since our inception, Arctic Securities has been an advisor within the sector and across relevant geographic regions including Norway, the UK and Iceland. Across species, Arctic Securities has advised on situations involving salmon, whitefish and krill. Our seafood team offers access to a wide network of industry participants and financial enterprises.
