56K Salmon Escape From Marine Harvest Fishery

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.
