fisheries.no is Norway’s official site for information about seafood safety, fisheries and aquaculture management. Fisheries.no is provided by the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries in cooperation with the Directorate of Fisheries, the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, the Institute of Marine Research and the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research.
Seafood is a natural part of a balanced diet. It contains high levels of several important nutrients ( and thus helps us maintain a good nutritional status, important for our health).
Resource control in Norway is directed at the entire chain, from the point in time when the fish is caught in the sea, through its storage and sale and to its export abroad. The dominant goal of marine resource management is to aid a sound fisheries policy founded on long-term thinking, profitability and sustainable harvesting of marine life.
