What is Norwegian Seafood Council ?
The Norwegian Seafood Council works together with the Norwegian fisheries and aquaculture industry to develop markets for Norwegian seafood.
The Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) aims to increase the value of Norwegian seafood resources. We do this through market insights, market development, market risk management and reputational risk management in select markets around the world.
The Norwegian seafood industry finances the activities of the Council through fees levied on all exports of Norwegian seafood. NSC is the approval authority for Norwegian seafood exporters. The Council also acts as an advisor for the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries in affairs concerning seafood exports and trade.

Norge Italia or “Pesce Norvegese” is one of the main sponsor that partecipated at the project Upstream Cods.
Upstream cods is our way to tell people the story, using pictures, about stockfish and salted cod, how these two products gets fished, prepared and presented to everyone’s table.
The meaning of Upstream Cods is to follow the full production chain backwards: we’ll start from Liguria’s festivals and restaurants concerned stockfish and salted cod, going upstream to the Lofoten islands, Norway, where the cods are fished and prepared to be sold to public, as we know it…be sure that we are also going to snoop around on how they are cooked in their native land. And, by the way, will photograph the natural beauty of these remote islands located beyond the Arctic Circle!
