Norway Royal Salmon's announcement that it is mulling the sale of its Region South business is attracting interest from several players in the country.

NRS hired DNB as financial advisers for the sale, and the deadline to submit the first non-binding bids is quickly approaching.

According to IntraFish sources, several companies have shown interest in the business, but it is unclear whether NRS will get its asking price.

NRS CEO Charles Hostlund declined to comment about the process to IntraFish.
