Salmon farmers make up almost ten percent of those listed in Norway’s 400 wealthiest. 

Norwegian financial magazine, Kapital, today published its annual overview of Norway’s 400 richest people. The magazine’s system is not based on tax lists, which struggle to reflect the real value ​​of most companies. On Kapital’s list, the editors themselves have researched and calculated the real fortunes of those featured.

In recent years, as a function of boom times and high salmon prices, there has been a rapidly increasing stock of people from the Norwegian aquaculture industry on Kapital’s rich list. This year, a total of 38 names, corresponding to 9.5 per cent of the total entries, come from the industry.

A new criteria this year is that entrants must have a fortune of at least one billion kroner (€100 million) to make the list.
