guided a total harvest volume of 75 thousand tonnes (HOG) for Q1 2013.

(1) The harvest volumes are provided in head on gutted (HOG) equivalents. The

Additional information

Operational EBIT for the Group was approximately NOK 480 million in Q1 2013
(NOK 276 million in Q1 2012).

Total operational EBIT per kg through the value chain based on source of
origin was approximately:

Norway NOK 8.3
Chile        NOK -5.9

The results from Chile were impacted by a low price level and high biological
costs. The result in Chile further underlines the requirement for
consolidation in the Chilean industry.

Net interest bearing debt (NIBD) by the end of the quarter was approximately
NOK 6,300 million. The payment of Morpol shares impacted NIBD by approximately
NOK 745 million in the quarter.

Marine Harvest will release its Q1 2013 results on 30 April at 0700 CET.
