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 2018:
- Our 4,500 employees contributed NOK 525 million in income tax.
- We purchased goods and services worth NOK 16,9 billion from more than 300 different municipalities.
- We had operations in around 60 different municipalities.
- We contributed to almost 5,500 full-time equivalents within other industries in Norway.
Each 100 kroner spent on fisheries generates revenue of NOK 350 in other industries.
