Fisheries and aquaculture
The aquaculture industry is one of Norway's most important export industries. Vista Analysis delivers economic analyses of the industry's growth potential, its investment needs, its regional and national economic importance, and the industry's environmental impacts. We have thorough knowledge of the fisheries sector through a larger number of assessments of the need for fishing ports around the country, especially in the northern parts of Norway. We have expertise in analysing and evaluating economic impacts of measures by means of close dialogue with local informants and in line with national norms analysis. For example, we developed unit costs per hour and km for fishing vessels based on the Directorate of Fisheries (Fdir) profitability study and we have solid experience quantifying the number of fishing vessels within defined geographical areas based on AIS and Fdir landing statistics.
