                Marine Harvest ASA : Result of mandatory offer

Reference is made to the mandatory offer (the "Offer") made by Marine Harvest
ASA ("Marine Harvest") on 14 January 2013 to acquire all outstanding shares in
Morpol ASA ("Morpol").

The acceptance period of the Offer expired 26 February 2013 at 16:30 CET. As
of 26 February 2013, Marine Harvest has received acceptance of the offer for
in total 64,729,810 shares, and will following settlement of the Offer own
146,261,515 shares in Morpol. This represents approximately 87.1 per cent of
the share capital in Morpol. There may be additional acceptances not
registered yet, so Marine Harvest's total ownership in Morpol after completion
of the Offer may therefore somewhat increase. Settlement for the shares
tendered in the Offer will be made no later than 12 March 2013.

Marine Harvest does not own any other rights to acquire shares in Morpol.

Marine Harvest will not have voting rights for its shares in Morpol until the
transaction has been approved by the EU Commission and Ukrainian competition
authorities. Marine Harvest has entered into the pre-notification procedure
with the EU Commission and intends to officially file the concentration
shortly with the EU Commission and Ukrainian competition authorities.
