The world’s second largest salmon farmer harvested a total of 78,100 metric tons of salmon in Norway and Iceland for the quarter.
Norwegian salmon farming giant SalMar has reported a 24,500-ton increase for its Q3 2023 harvest.
The company harvested a total of 78,100 metric tons of salmon in Norway and Iceland, marking a 24,500 ton increase from the 53,600 tons recorded in the same period the previous year.
SalMar’s acquisition of Norway Royal Salmon, which added an annual capacity of 70,000 tons, was not completed until November 2022, meaning, SalMar operated fewer sites in Q3 in 2022.
The breakdown of SalMar’s Q3 harvest is as follows:
Farming Central Norway: 48,400 tons
Farming Northern Norway: 25,700 tons
Icelandic Salmon: 4,000 tons
A detailed Q3 report, including Scottish Sea Farms data, is expected on Nov. 9.
The disclosed harvest volume for Q3 2023 does not account for the share of fish harvested by Scottish Sea Farms, a joint venture owned equally by SalMar and Lerøy Seafood Group.
