OSLO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Norway’s Seafood Council said on Monday:

** The value of Norwegian seafood exports rose by 2 pct year-on-year in January to NOK 7.7 billion ($994.23 million)

** Volumes rose 13 pct year-on-year to 198,000 tonnes

** “The growth in value seen in Norwegian seafood exports in January is due to whitefish products.”
