    NOK -48.9m in Q4 2012, against NOK -38.2m in Q4 2011.

  • Write-downs related to outbreak of furunculosis in the smolt facility in BC as well as increased mortality in Shetland from the treatment of salmon lice and AGD (amoebic gill disease) reduced the performance by a total of NOK 92m in Q4.
