Norway Royal Salmon ASA: ISA at two smolt sites in Region North

Recently, the NRS's farming operation site Baltsfjord in Troms in Region North
has been diagnosed with the fish disease ISA. The site contains 0.5 million
fish with an average weight of 0.35 kilograms. The biomass at the site will
be destroyed within a few days. This fish will be replaced by new smolts in
2015 and there will not be any significant production consequences. Due to
suspicion that the infection came from one smolt supplier, the site Kokelv,
which also have received smolt from the same supplier, was tested for
infection. Today we received reports that there is also suspicion of ISA at
this site. The site Kokelv contains 1.2 million fish with an average weight
of 0.45 kilograms. NRS continues to work to identify the extent of the
infection at the site. NRS works to make the production consequences at
Kokelv as small as possible and we will come back with more information on
this when we release our third quarter reports. It is these two sites that
have received smolts from this smolt supplier in 2015 and we consider that
there is no risk of further detections. If the biomass at the site Kokelv
also have to be destroyed, both incidents are expected to result in a one-off
cost in the third quarter of 2015 of approximately NOK 20 - 25 million.
