Monthly Salmon Report

The report provides the reader with updates on the industry in all major salmon and trout producing countries. It also monitors salmon consumption in the main consumer markets and provides updates on important trade flows and market prices. The report is relevant for decision makers in the fish farming and fish processing industry, traders and related businesses.

The report is structured in four parts, covering production, main producing countries, trade flows to main markets as well as a chapter on wild salmon fisheries. The salmon and trout markets consist of supplies from the fish farming industry and the wild catch industry. We keep a close watch on both to see how they affect each other through landings, import and export statistics.

Our unique production simulation models enable us to give the reader information on the most important production factors, e.g. smolt release, feed consumption and harvest volumes. With an extensive network and world-leading expertise, Kontali monitors salmonid production and project future production trends.

The report gives the reader information on the trade of salmonids from the main producing countries and processing hubs as well as imports to the main salmon consuming markets. Seeing trade data in coherence with information collected from our network enables us to comment and advise about the current and future market situation.

You can also subscribe to an executive summary made available a week in advance as an additional product to the report (“Monthly Executive Salmon Summary”).
