SalMar's Q2 harvest volume in Norway and Iceland was similar to the same period last year.

SalMar harvested 44,300 tonnes in Q2


SalMar, the world’s second largest Atlantic salmon farmer, harvested 44,800 gutted weight tonnes of fish in Norway and Iceland in the second quarter of this year, it said in a trading update this afternoon.

The volume is 500 gwt more than the 44,300 gwt harvested in the same quarter last year.

The volumes from SalMar’s different farming regions in Q2 2024 were:

  • Farming Central Norway: 27,100 gwt (Q2 2023: 28,300 gwt)
  • Farming Northern Norway: 17,000 gwt (16,000 gwt)
  • SalMar Aker Ocean: 0
  • Icelandic Salmon: 700 gwt (100 gwt)

The total for Q2 2023 differs from the sum of the individual regional volumes due to rounding up.

Second-quarter volumes for Scottish Sea Farms, in which SalMar and fellow Norwegian salmon heavyweight Lerøy Seafood Group each have a 50% stake, are not included because SSF it is classed as an associate company, not a subsidiary.
