For everyone seeking a deeper understanding of the world of seafood and aquaculture


References from all over the world

Our customers range from the largest salmon producers in the world to small local start-ups introducing new technology. We have customers in every part of the seafood value chain in every corner of the world, including suppliers and service providers, fish farmers, fishermen, feed producers, processors, exporters, banks, brokers, hedge funds, insurers, public authorities, research institutions and organisations.


Kontali participates in a number of collaborations, both small and large, directly with the industry and more broadly together with universities and research institutions, organisations, governmental bodies and public authorities. We’ve also provided general market insight and in-depth industry analyses in collaborations with the industry in international anti-dumping cases and mergers.

Below, we present some of our previous and ongoing projects.

Cost development and drivers in Norwegian salmon farming

Since 2017, Kontali works with Nofima AS on this project funded by the Norwegian seafood research fund (FHF). Running until the end of 2019, the objectives of the project are to monitor the yearly cost development and produce a yearly report with in-depth analyses regarding one or two key cost drivers. Within the project, we work closely with a reference group consisting of industry representatives.

Analysis of access and utilisation of marine bi-products in Norway

Since 2013, Kontali has worked with Sintef Ocean on a project funded by the Norwegian seafood research fund (FHF), analysing the access and utilisation of bi-products from the Norwegian fishery and aquaculture industry. The objectives are to give industry insight and information to stakeholders and others regarding the flow of goods and services and stimulate activity to increase the profitability for the industry.
