Lerøy´s number of employees keeps growing. New jobs are being created not only in the fisheries and fish farming industry but also in local and national businesses that supply products to our industry.

The parent company, Lerøy Seafood Group ASA, has its head office in Bergen, Norway. In addition to the Group CEO, the parent company has 11 employees.

In administrative terms, all personnel functions are handled by the wholly-owned subsidiary Lerøy Seafood AS. At year-end the Group had 4,298 employees, with 2,880 men and 1,418 women. 825 of the group`s work years are outside Norway. The proportion of women is 33.0%, representing a minor increase on the previous year.

The company operates in a global industry in which the constantly changing framework conditions require flexible employees who are dynamic and willing to adapt and learn. The Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to praise the employees’ efforts, their understanding of the need for an operational focus which targets results, and their willingness to adapt to change throughout the entire organisation. The Board of Directors would like to thank all employees for their hard work in 2017.
