Marine Harvest reports 1Q 2014 volume growth
Norwegian salmon farmer Marine Harvest has reported “good growth conditions” have led to an increase of volume in 1Q 2014.
Harvest volumes for the quarter totaled 80,000 metric tons head-on gutted. The company released the results prior to the anticipated release of its full quarterly report on 30 April.
The company also reported operations earnings before interest and taxes of about NOK 1.1 billion, which the company called “the best quarter so far for Marine Harvest.”
The company said the results come on the heels of Marine Harvest’s “successful” divestment of its U.K. farming assets.
