Harvesting according to plan
Operations to increase harvesting capacity have developed according to plan last week. We now have in Arnarfjörður, number of vessels supporting the effort to harvest out Hringsdalur efficiently in next few weeks and collect mortalities.
Mortality numbers have caught the attention of media lately as Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authorities (MAST) has informed that expected mortality in Hringsdalur are close to 500 MT. This is the reason for increased harvesting capacity.
Arnarlax has provided volume guidance of 10.000 MT harvest volume in 2020 and will inform stakeholders if any changes estimated to that plan. Reporting of 4Q-19 numbers will be at 26th of February.
We would like to thank our hard-working employees, contractors and suppliers for relentless efforts and hard work the last few days. They are now moving record volumes of salmon under extreme conditions through our plant in Bildudalur. Thursday harvesting volume was 18.200 fish, average size of 5,8 KG or over 100 MT of gutted salmon! – well done!
