Nordic Stocks – Marine Harvest to be Reported to Directorate of Fisheries
Reuters, 13 Dec 2013
The Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries said it would report Marine Harvest, the world’s biggest Atlantic salmon producer, to the police after 60,000 salmon escaped one of its fish farms in November, Norwegian daily Dagens Naeringsliv said on Friday.
“We have a reason to believe that Marine Harvest has violated the law on aquaculture,” Staale Hanse, a regional director at the Directorate, told the paper.
Marine Harvest said it was not aware of any report to the police, but was looking into the incident.
