Mowi confirmed its operations at its Little Bay marine site off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, lost around 210,611 Atlantic salmon.

The company didn't give a number when it initially announced the loss on Oct. 23, but IntraFish estimated the loss at 270,000 fish based on the 2.7 million fish held at the site. Under Newfoundland regulations, salmon farming companies are required to report "abnormal mortalities" exceeding 10 percent.

The farm site was already scheduled for harvest at the time of the loss and is expected to be fallowed by early December, according to a new update from the company submitted to the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Fisheries, Forestry and Agriculture by Communications Director Ian Roberts.
