For the 11th consecutive year, Ragnar Tveteras, a business economist at the University of Stavanger’s Department for Industrial Economics, Risk Management and Planning in Norway, will present global finfish production figures for 2016.

In presenting the figures for 2016, Tveteras will expound upon the trends affecting the supply, demand and price of farmed finfish. Species include prominent farmed finfish such as salmon, trout, tilapia, pangasius, catfish, carp, barramundi, sea bass and sea bream and niche farmed finfish such as grouper, cobia, flounder, turbot, Atlantic halibut, Atlantic cod and bluefin tuna.
