A SalMar salmon farm in Norway.

SalMar harvested 44,300 tonnes of salmon in Q2


The world’s second largest salmon farmer, SalMar, harvested 44,300 gutted weight tonnes of fish in Norway and Iceland in the second quarter of this year, it said in a market update today.

SalMar harvested 28,300 gwt in central Norway and 16,000 gwt in northern Norway, plus 100 gwt in Iceland.

The company’s 50% share of volume harvested by Scotland’s second largest salmon producer, Scottish Sea Farms, which SalMar co-owns with Lerøy Seafood Group, is not included in the consolidated figures because it is a joint venture, not a subsidiary.

SalMar’s full Q2 2023 report will be presented at the Aqua Nor trade show in Trondheim on 24 August.
