NRS expecting reduced harvest after ISA outbreak
Norway Royal Salmon is facing an early harvest and / or cull of 1.3 million fish after confirmation of infectious salmon anaemia (ISA) at its Kråkeberget site in Troms, northern Norway.
In a market announcement, NRS said the site had two fish groups – one comprising 500,000 fish with an average weight of 4.5 kilograms and the other group comprising 800,000 fish with an average weight of 1.6 kilograms.
“The consequences of the disease detection are difficult to estimate now, but it will probably reduce NRS’s expected harvest volume for 2021,” said the company.
“NRS continue to analyse the consequences and will return with more information when reporting the second quarter of 2021.”
