However, minister says there is no chance of reinstating licences anytime soon.

NTV reports that Mowi CEO Alf-Helge Aarskog met with Newfoundland PM Dwight Ball as well as Fisheries Minister Gerry Bryne on Thursday night.

Byrne said he was hoping for a productive meeting but said that it would not result in the company’s affected licences being reinstated since Mowi claimed unusually high water temperatures killed 2.6 million fish died at its Northern Harvest site.

The Fisheries Minister has been pushing for a face to face talk with Aarskog since the 11th of October.

The meeting will result in a new technical briefing on aquaculture policy and procedures in Newfoundland, NTV reported.

SalmonBusines has contacted Mowi and NL authorities for more details on the meeting.
