Go back to the post on share prices and scroll to the bottom, to find articles as recent as Mid-March, 2012 predicting a rise, when it is obvious that with Norway being released from a 26% countervailing duty for dumping fish on the US market, and mounting fish supply, and Chilean product back at 500,000 tons that Marine Harvest, Cermaq/Mainstream, Grieg Seafood and so on will have their share prices back in freefall in 2012: http://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2011/10/key-links-fish-farm-share-prices-and.html.

And still in April, Marine Harvest's Q1 sales (EBITs) compared with Q1 2011 is K270 versus K963 or only 28% of last year. And the big Chilean numbers have yet to be harvested - (now estimated as high as 700,000 tonnes).
