Last year, well over 100,000 metric tons of fish were exported from Norway to Japan. Fresh fish from the North Atlantic, particularly salmon, is much in demand in all parts of the world. In 2013, for example, more than 150,000 metric tons of fish were transported to France. In total, more than 500 producers in Norway exported fish valued at around €7.3bn – around 2.3 million metric tons. DB Schenker exported nearly 400,000 metric tons of that figure.
