Oslo airport plans to build seafood hub


Norway's Oslo Airport has set its sights on becoming home to a new processed seafood exports hub to boost its handling capacity as overseas demand rises, particularly for farmed salmon, and thereby reducing the nation's dependency on transhipment for its seafood exports via other European airports, according to Shipping Gazette.
According to CEO Dag Falk-Petersen of Avinor, the authority responsible for Norway's 46 state-owned airports, the body is "inviting private actors in the export industry to build and operate a state-of-the-art seafood centre that will give Norway an important competitive advantage compared to other countries and airports."
This comes as Norwegian exports, with salmon taking a clear lead, have been increasing apace during the past 18 months. The number of overseas markets, especially in the Middle East and Asia, has also been on the rise, reported FISHupdate.
The plan calls for the development of a 15,000 sq m complex, including industrial facilities, to accommodate future growth. Avinor said such a facility would "be important for the Norwegian export industry at large" and will be "crucial for reaching the seafood industry's export goals in the future."
"The current direct flight capacity from Norway is not sufficient to meet the increased demand for fresh seafood in Asia and North America," Mr Falk-Petersen said.
"Around 600 tonnes of Norwegian seafood is exported daily as air cargo to the world. Only 30 per cent of this goes by air from Oslo Airport, the rest is carried by land transport to Europe for flight connections to Asia and North America."
