Abstract: This thesis has tested the Farm-Retail price transmission for Norwegian salmon exports to France. By the use of public data for farm level price in Norway, export level price in Norway, retail level price in France, transportation costs and currency exchange rates the price transmission for the Norway-France value chain has been investigated. Tests of asymmetric price transmission were also conducted. Results show that the farm-export linkage is stronger than the export-retail linkage with respect to the price pass through. Both transportation costs and currency exchange rates significantly influences the price transmission elasticity. There is evidence of asymmetric price transmission in the value chain. The price changes at the export level respond more to a decrease in the farm level price than to an increase. The Salmon Agreement between Norway and the EU significantly influenced the market mechanism. Denne oppgaven har testet pris transmisjonen på verdikjeden fra lakseoppdretter i Norge til butikk markedet i Frankrike. Ved hjelp av oppdrettspris, eksportpris, butikkpris, transportkostnader og valutakurser har pris transmisjonen langs verdikjeden blitt undersøkt. Det er blitt utført tester for sjekke for asymmetrisk pris transmisjon. Resultatene viser at oppdretter-eksportør leddet er sterkere enn eksportør-butikk leddet med hensyn til fullverdig pris overføring. Både transportkostnader og valutakurser har signifikant påvirkning på pris transmisjonselastisiteten. Det er bevis for asymmetrisk pris transmisjon i verdikjeden. Prisendringene på eksportleddet reagerer mer på en nedgang i oppdrettsprisen enn på en oppgang. Lakseavtalen mellom Norge og EU har en signifikant påvirkning på prisdannelsen i markedet.
