Two of the salmon industry’s biggest investors, led by billionaire John Fredriksen, last month dumped shares for 5.4 billion kroner ($654 million).

Salmon prices have jumped by almost half over the past year and have reached records, supported by a reduction in supply following an algae bloom outbreak in Chile, the world’s second-biggest producer. The 11-member Oslo Seafood Index traded at a record high this week after rising more than 400 percent since a 2011 low.
