This is well over 1,000 tonnes more than the Norwegian salmon farmer guided in its first quarter report, but 700 tonnes fewer than in Q2 2018.

In the Q1 report, LSG also wrote that it expects its three Norwegian salmon farming divisions - Lerøy Aurora, Lerøy Midt and Lerøy Sjøtroll - to harvest 36,000 gwt, 71,000 gwt and 66,000 gwt respectively in 2019, adding up to 173,000 tonnes in total.
