Norway sold a record 61 billion kroner ($10bn) worth of salmon in 2013, as key markets rebounded in Western Europe.
"The main explanation for the export record is high demand for Norwegian salmon on the world market, which has resulted in strong prices in 2013," said Terje Martinussen, chief executive of the Norwegian Seafood Council. 
 
Salmon exports were up 17 percent on 2012, and beat the previous record of 53.8 billion kroner set in 2010. 
 
Salmon exports in November accounted for 16 percent of Norway's mainland exports, a larger proportion than the industry has seen for decades.
