Atlantic salmon harvests reached 15.000 tons (WFE), 77% higher than those of the third quarter but still slightly lower than the 2020 fourth quarter. The consequence of this is due to the late effects of algae blooms that occurred during the beginning of 2021. The harvest for the entire year was 40,000 tons (WFE), 24% less than the previous year though.
