Approximately 56,000 salmon have escaped from Marine Harvest’s plant in Nærøy, Trøndelag.

There were 180,000 salmon in the cage before the escape. Marine Harvest has taken note, and after a countdown, the Directorate of Fisheries on Tuesday afternoon was informed about how many fish had escaped.

The salmon in the cage weigh about two kilos each.

Marine Harvest states in a press release that the escape occurred after a net was damaged during a maintenance procedure at the farm in Arnøyfjorden on Monday.
