Marine Harvest Forecasts Salmon Production Down in 201308 March 2013
GLOBAL - Marine Harvest has estimated that its total salmon production will be down 11 per cent in 2013.
Marine Harvest's report stated that the estimated overall decline in production is due to cash flow measures taken in 2011/2012 and Amoebic Gill Disease (AGD) problems in Scotland and Ireland.
Following good growth of harvest volumes last year, Marine Harvest's Scottish farms are the only ones expected to see a growth in volume (four per cent).
For Marine Harvest's other farms, volumes are expected to be down; 20 per cent in Canada, 15 per cent in Chile and 10 per cent in Norway.
