Norway Tax Plan Prompts Auction No-Show by Major Salmon Farmers

The biggest names in salmon farming in Norway were missing from the results of the first auction of capacity since the government proposed a resource rent tax on the industry.

Mowi ASA, SalMar ASA and Leroy Seafood Group ASA weren’t among the companies that successfully bid for new permits for salmon, trout and rainbow trout where environmental conditions allow for increases, according to a statement from the Fisheries Directorate.
