Mowi CEO Alf-Helge Aarskog is confident that Trudeau's election will not affect the company's salmon netpen operations in Canada, despite the prime minister's resolve that he would ban the industry in British Columbia if he got back into power in yesterday's elections.

"We work with any government there is and I’m sure when [Trudeau] puts his mind to it, this will not be an issue," Alf-Helge Aarskog told IntraFish.
