Norwegian Seafood Council

The Norwegian Seafood Council works together with the Norwegian fisheries and aquaculture industry to develop markets for Norwegian seafood.

The Norwegian Seafood Council established a presence in Central and West Africa in 2016, frequently visiting Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Congo, DRC, Cameron, Gabon, Ivory Coast, etc. The Seafood Council is working on identifying the potential for increased imports of Norwegian seafood, arrange Seafood seminars and help establish relationships between the Norwegian seafood industry and markets in West Africa.

No other country in Africa consumes more fish per person than Ghana. The total market for fish is estimated to be around one million tonnes. Ghana’s fishing industry catches some 400 000 kg and the rest is covered mainly by imports and some fish farming. There are opportunities for exporting several types of fish from Norwegian waters to Ghana.
