Lerøy’s seafood operations create major ripple effects for society, both in the form of jobs, the purchase of goods and services and tax income for Norwegian municipalities.
Each marine job creates two jobs on shore.
Below are some figures for 2016:
- Our 3,800 employees contributed NOK 451 million in income tax to 198 different municipalities.
- We purchased goods and services worth NOK 12 billion from 286 different municipalities.
- We had operations in around 60 different municipalities.
- We contributed to almost 3,000 jobs in Norway.
Each 100 kroner spent on fisheries generates revenue of NOK 350 in other industries.
