Norway sees surge in demand for fishmeal

The market for Norwegian fishmeal is experiencing a sudden surge in demand — at home as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as from China.

Background to the announcement is a shortage of feed ingredients containing amino acids, which are essential for high-quality livestock and poultry feeds. The shortfall has arisen from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This has led to a dramatic reduction in imports of these vital raw materials for animal nutrition.
