 Cermaq ASA : Possible PD-infection at a Mainstream farming site in Finnmark

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

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.
