The unpredictability of harvesting or catching live fish puts great pressure on the supply chain. Knowing customer demand but not completely knowing supply volume creates uncertainty as to whether the demand can be satisfied. This also means that transportation volumes are not readily known. Together with short lead times to reach customers' sites, this can result in the shipper either having a surplus or shortage of transportation capacity, which then leads to increased costs, as the real capacity is determined.

Norway is the world's second largest seafood exporter, and the equivalent of 37 million seafood meals produced by Norway is consumed worldwide each day. In 2014, Norway exported NOK 69 billion (€ 7.6) worth of seafood. The highest ever for the first 6 months of a year was recorded this year and stood at NOK 34 billion (€3.8). The biggest importing countries are Poland, France, and the UK.
