The Minister of Fisheries is a councilor of state in the Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs (Norway). The position is since October 2013 held by Siv Jensen of the Progress Party who is a member of the Solberg's Cabinet.

The position was created 1 July 1946. Between 2004 and 2013 the minister held the name of Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs reflecting a broadening in responsibility for the ministry. When Solberg's Cabinet took office, the minister was again called Minister of Fisheries and did no longer have responsibilities for coastal affairs.

The Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs is due to be abolished in January 2014, and the minister will then head part of a new Ministry of Trade and Fisheries.[1]
