About Us

Our Seafood

In Norway, the vast seas and oceans that surround our coastline are seven times the size of our land. 90% of us live along the edge of our coastline, which is longer than the equator. These waters that surround us help to define us as a people. As Norwegians, each of us inherits this plentiful, natural larder that we’re lucky enough to be able to share with the world. And we try to fish it in a way that means we can hand it on to our children. So our deep, cold, clear waters will be stocked with fresh seafood today and always. It’s the perfect environment for the cod, haddock, salmon and prawns. Icy waters keep them in peak condition until they’re fished and frozen on the very same day, locking in the delicious, mouth-watering taste for kitchen tables around the world.

About Our Seafood

Who we are

Geographically, Norway is one long coastline. So it’s no surprise that we’re a fishing nation. It’s in our genes after all; plenty of our fathers and their fathers before them made their living at sea, and as children we grow up eating it. At the Norwegian Seafood Council, our job is to tell this story – and why it makes our seafood the best in the world – around the world.

Who NSC India

The Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) aims to increase the value of Norwegian seafood resources. We do this through market insights, market development, market risk management and reputational risk management in select markets around the world. Our head office is located in Tromsø in northern Norway and we have offices in Stockholm, Hamburg, Paris, Madrid, Lisbon, Milan, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Singapore, Shanghai, Boston and Mumbai.

What we offer

Through Company Initiative, the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) can help more products to reach more customers. If you plan an activity where the Norwegian origin and the country of origin label (Norge – Seafood From Norway) is part of the communication, up to 50% of the activity can be co-funded. You will of course gain access to NSCs market competence in Norway and overseas.

India Director

Yogi Shergill will explore the potential for further export growth of Norwegian seafood, explicitly Norwegian salmon and cod, to the Indian market. Shergill is of Indian origin, but has lived 42 years of his life in Norway. He has extensive business experience in India, and knows the business culture of both countries very well. The goal is to establish a broader foundation between Norwegian exporters and Indian companies that can enhance delivery of seafood products from Norway to the Indian consumer. Norwegian companies are already exporting salmon to some cities in India, however there is a need for stronger links between the Indian and Norwegian seafood industry.

How we are structured

We are financed by the Norwegian seafood industry through fees levied on all seafood exports. NSC is a public company owned by the Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs. The General Assembly is formed by the Minister for Fisheries and Coastal Affairs, who appoints the Board of Directors for a period of two years at a time.

Norway Journey

We can´t say for certain when the story of our fisheries started, but we do know that it is a rich and diverse history. Rock carvings in Northern Norway date as far back as the Stone Age, and from early on, fish was an important resource and a means of survival along the coast.
