Marine Harvest has set nets in the surrounding waters to try to catch the fugitives, which weigh within 2 kg and further agrees to pay 500 kroner (60 euros) animals caught alive.

These escapes are a scourge to the marine ecosystem as farmed salmon runaway weaken the gene pool of their wild cousins ​​by mingling with them.

Industry professionals have taken the arm problem head on and the number of escapes has been divided by 10 from 2011 to 2012 to 38,000 salmon. In 2006, that number had peaked at 921,000, according to the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries.
