Marine Harvest (OSE:MHG): Approval of four development licenses in connection with "the Egg" concept in Norway.

Reference is made to the stock exchange release on 28 November 2016.

Today, the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries informed that it has granted Marine Harvest four development licenses in relation to "the Egg" concept. Marine Harvest is pleased that the authority shares the view that "the Egg" represents a potential new production solution within salmon farming which may contribute to further develop the salmon farming industry. However, Marine Harvest will appeal the decision in relation to the rejection of the remaining ten development licenses for "the Egg" concept. The appeal will be submitted to the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries shortly.
