Kontali was founded in Kristiansund, Norway, as a consultancy for the Norwegian fish farming industry in 1987. We started collecting production data, establishing the first production simulation models and developing the salmon database.
In 1992, the first regular publication “Monthly salmon report” was released. Throughout the 90’s we increased our focus on industry structures and industry analyses, and by 2002 the databases and operations also included other farmed marine species and pelagic fisheries.
Kontali has always been involved in international cases and collaborations. It all started in 1990 when we assisted the Norwegian salmon farming industry in American and European anti-dumping investigations. Over the years we have also contributed with data, analyses and market intelligence in merger investigations in the European Commission. For the last decade, we have been a central contributor in large EU-projects such as EUMOFA and Horizon 2020.
Kontali has become a trusted provider of independent and objective information to the seafood industry. We are favoured by a growing client base from all corners of the world to analyse, interpret and understand their challenges in different areas of the industry.
