The overall production of farmed salmon has shown an increasing trend till 2008, after which the production started declining. The decline can be attributed to Atlantic Salmon as the quantity of Pacific Salmon produced worldwide is expected to have increased during 2008-10. The Atlantic Salmon production declined due to reduced supplies from Chile due to Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA), a disease which causes immense mortality and reduced growth for Atlantic salmon.

Norway and Chile are the dominant producers in the global salmon market, with a share of about two-thirds of global farmed salmon. There are other producing countries, which include Scotland and Canada. The worldwide salmon consumption can be divided among five major markets: the European Union fresh and frozen market, the Japanese fresh and frozen market, the US fresh and frozen market, canned salmon markets and other markets. The European Union dominates the worldwide salmon market.

Typically salmon production has been confined to four companies: Marine Harvest, Leroy Seafood, and Cermaq, Salmar. Marine Harvest is the leading salmon farming player.
