Example text

As the regulatory designs differ, they also influence industry structure and competitiveness. The following provides information on regulations in Norway, Scotland and Chile. Most other producers have similar systems, although there is greater emphasis on controlling production in Norway than in other producing countries. It is also worthwhile to note that, as mentioned above, on the west coast of Canada there was a moratorium on new licences from 1995 to 2002, and environmental concerns make it very difficult for the industry to grow.

Changes in the quality of inputs or their prices can also change the mix of input factors. The distinction between productivity growth for farmers and their suppliers is often not made, and combined it is somewhat imprecisely referred to as productivity growth for the whole industry. In addition, although the focus is generally on the process of actually producing salmon, productivity growth in the distribution chain to retailers is equally important. This is because consumers are primarily interested in the final price for a product of any given quality, and whether a price reduction is due to better input factors or better logistics is of little importance.

The average real export price in 2008 was 30% of the price in 1985 and production cost fell slightly more as it was only 28% of the cost in 1985. Over time, average profit margins for Norwegian farmers have remained fairly constant. 10 Producers and profitability were strongly affected by Hitra disease (vibriosis, caused by Vibrio salmonicida) in 1986 and infectious salmon anaemia and furunkulosis in 1990–1992. Further, in 1990–1992 there were special regulations for first-hand sales of salmon, and beginning in 1996 feed quotas were in effect.
