In connection with the presentation of the Q3 2015 results, Marine Harvest
guided a total harvest volume of 115 thousand tonnes (GWE) for Q4 2015.

Note:

(1) The harvest volumes are provided in gutted weight equivalents (GWE). The

Additional information

Operational EBIT for the Group was approximately NOK 850 million in Q4 2015
(NOK 1,032 million in Q4 2014). Start-up costs at the Rosyth processing plant
in Scotland have been higher than previously expected and have as such
impacted results negatively by approximately NOK 70 million in Q4 2015. This
effect is included in the figures below for Scotland.

Total operational EBIT per kg through the value chain were approximately as
follows for the main sources of origin:

-------------------------
| * Norway NOK 12.1 |
| * Scotland NOK -0.9 |
| * Canada NOK 3.3 |
| * Chile NOK -12.3 |
-------------------------
Reported net interest bearing debt (NIBD) was approximately NOK 9.6 billion at
the end of the quarter.

A separate press release will be disclosed later today regarding a
restructuring plan of Marine Harvest Scotland Farming. Following a recent
review of the business up to 100 jobs will be reduced to make the business
more efficient and sustainable. Harvesting volumes for 2016 will not be
impacted by the restructuring plan.

The complete Q4 2015 report will be released on 17 February at 06:30 CET.
