The main objective for the project has been to analyse the industrys freight demand within, to and from Nordland. Focus has been on export and transport of fish and fish products. The analysis are based on public transport and fishery statistics. The results show that Nordland is the biggest producer of salmon in Norway. In volume (tonnes) ores, crude mineral and fertilzers are the biggest export products from Nordland. The fishing industries has more than half the production value, but only 10 per cent of the export volume from Nordland. Of all fresh fish in export 39 per cent are transported by road, 14 per cent by truck and ferry and 43 per cent by ship. In volume from North- Norway the most important markets for fish and fish products are Russia and Denmark.
