The report maps family ownership in Norwegian aquaculture of salmonids per 2020. Out of 122 companies, 89 (73 %) are found to be under family ownership. These control 49 % of total production capacity, equaling 471 074 tons maximal allowed biomass (MAB). Many of these family-owned fish farms are partially owned by external investors. Adjusting for this external share, we find that the families control 38 % of total production capacity. Foreign ownership was with our method at 31,4 % of MAB in 2020.
