Nova Sea joins the companies that a few days before the end of 2022 opened new subsidiaries to transfer their concessions before the new Norwegian salmon tax came into force on January 1, 2023. As other companies such as Mowi, Cermaq, Lerøy, Grieg Seafood, or Norlaks have done, the company based in Lovund, Northern Norway, has also created a new company. Nova Sea Havbruk was born as a result of the new salmon tax.
“Like most of the aquaculture industry we have transferred our concessions to a new company, called Nova Sea Havbruk AS”, confirmed to WeAreAquaculture Trud Berg, Head of Communication at Nova Sea. In its consultation response to the proposed tax on ground rent in aquaculture in Norway, the company already said that it can contribute more money to the community but not with the system proposed by the government.
