In the first 9 months of the year covering the January-September period, 19.733 tonnes of Black Sea Salmon were exported from our country, providing a foreign exchange inflow of 112 million 210 thousand 299 dollars. While there was a surge of 197 percent in quantity and 269 percent in terms of value, compared to the same period of the previous year, Turkish Salmon, which was exported to 20 countries, was mostly preferred by Russia.

While approximately 80 percent of Turkish Salmon (90 Million 734,455 USD for 15,789 tonnes) which is highly appreciated by Russian consumers for taste and quality, is exported to the Russian Federation and most of these export products are grown and processed in our provinces of Rize and Trabzon.
