Grieg Seafoods total harvest volume for the fourth quarter of 2021 was approximately 23,700 metric tons -- up 17 percent on the same period in 2020 -- resulting in a total volume of 75,600 metric tons for the year, the group said in a trading update on Friday.

This excludes volumes from the Shetland operation, which was sold on Dec. 15.

Although an increase of 6 percent over 2020, originally the company was targeting 80,000 metric tons for 2021.
