On Monday, Norway Royal Salmon (NRS) subsidiary Arctic Fish was awarded a new salmon licence for 4,000 tonnes in MAB (maximum allowed biomass) in Arnarfjordur, Iceland.
This is a new licence at a site in a fjord where Arctic Fish has not operated before. The NRS subsidiary now has licences in all fish farming fjords in the Westfjords of Iceland.
In total, Arctic Fish has licences for 27,000 tonnes in MAB, of which 21,800 tonnes in MAB are in salmon licenses and 5,300 tonnes in MAB are in trout licenses. The company is currently converting its trout licenses into salmon licenses.
