Mainstream Norway has detected SAV virus in fish at the farming site Tuvan in
Langefjorden, Finnmark, and is consequently suspecting PD at this site.

The Norwegian Food Authority and the other farming companies in the region have
been informed about the situation. The site is quarantined. Mainstream is now in
close cooperation with the Food Authorities developing a plan for harvesting of
the site.

The Tuvan site contains approximately 580,000 fish. The fish has an average
weight of 2 kg, and harvest was originally planned for third quarter 2013. The
harvest of biomass at the Tuvan site is only expected to have limited financial

Mainstream's two farming sites in Langfjorden, Tuvan and Rivarbukt, have been
subject to comprehensive controls after SAV virus was detected in the fish at
the neighbouring site Ytre 
Kloven in August 2012. It has not been registered SAV in the biomass at Rivarbukt. The control of the fish at the Rivarbukt site will continue.
