SalMar, which owns 50% of Scottish Sea Farms, harvested 24,400 tgw in central Norway and 13,400 tgw in northern Norway.

A further 2,600 tgw was provided by its Icelandic subsidiary, Arnarlax.

In the same period in 2018 SalMar harvested 40,400 tgw in Norway and 2,000 tgw in Iceland.

Today’s update did not include production from Scottish Sea Farms. Because SalMar does not own a majority stake in Scottish Sea Farms, the company is classed as an associate and its production is not included within SalMar’s volumes.

The full Q4 2019 report will be released on February 26.
