The introductory chapter provides a brief overview of the purpose of this book about salted fish trade between Norway and Spain. The changing demand over time for fish products in Spain has impacts on both production systems and market levels in all countries participating in this specific value chain. The chapter thus introduces a first presentation of the historical-thematic basis of current trading with salted fish between Norway and Spain, and ultimately shows, through a brief presentation of the book's individual chapters, how the task of dealing with changing market dynamics is being solved.
