Our customers range from the largest salmon producers in the world to small local start-ups introducing new technology. We have customers in every part of the seafood value chain in every corner of the world, including suppliers and service providers, fish farmers, fishermen, feed producers, processors, exporters, banks, brokers, hedge funds, insurers, public authorities, research institutions and organisations.
Kontali participates in a number of collaborations, both small and large, directly with the industry and more broadly together with universities and research institutions, organisations, governmental bodies and public authorities. We’ve also provided general market insight and in-depth industry analyses in collaborations with the industry in international anti-dumping cases and mergers.
Below, we present some of our previous and ongoing projects.
In May 2019, Atlantic salmon farmers in the counties of Nordland and Troms experienced high mortality due to an extensive bloom of the algae Chrysochromulina leadbeateri. In June 2019, Kontali was granted a project by the Norwegian seafood research fund (FHF) to map and analyse the social and economic impacts.
The European market observatory for fisheries and aquaculture products (EUMOFA) is a market intelligence tool, developed by the European Commission. It aims to increase market transparency and efficiency, analyse EU market dynamics, and support business decisions and policy-making.
Kontali is a member of the consortium providing some of the company’s renowned services and has since the beginning of the project in 2010 played a central role in data collection, harmonization, quality assurance, market intelligence and analyses.
PrimeFish is a research project for strengthening the competitiveness of the European fisheries and aquaculture sectors funded by the European Horizon 2020. The project was aimed at developing an innovative market orientated prediction toolbox to strengthen the economic sustainability and competitiveness of European seafood on local and global markets.
The project was run by a large consortium of scientists from leading European and international universities and research institutes and Kontali had a central part in providing market intelligence and industry involvement.
Since 2017, Kontali works with Nofima AS on this project funded by the Norwegian seafood research fund (FHF). Running until the end of 2019, the objectives of the project are to monitor the yearly cost development and produce a yearly report with in-depth analyses regarding one or two key cost drivers. Within the project, we work closely with a reference group consisting of industry representatives.
Since 2013, Kontali has worked with Sintef Ocean on a project funded by the Norwegian seafood research fund (FHF), analysing the access and utilisation of bi-products from the Norwegian fishery and aquaculture industry. The objectives are to give industry insight and information to stakeholders and others regarding the flow of goods and services and stimulate activity to increase the profitability for the industry.
