In the stock market announcement, one of the key topics was the company’s intention to continue expanding in all regions, with a strong emphasis on economic sustainability. There was also room for criticism of the “salmon tax” in Norway, which the company deemed concerning.

Furthermore, the company announced that the combined growth potential of SalMar across all regions would result in a future harvest volume of 362,000 tons. This figure represents an increase from the previously projected 273,000 tons for 2023, translating to a 33% growth. Importantly, this growth is achievable without requiring significant investments to expand capacity.

Finally, the company reported a substantial annual cost savings increase of NOK 173 million (EUR million/USD million) resulting from the integration of NTS, NRS, and SalmoNor, with 71% of these savings achieved by the end of August 2023.
