There are far more dead fish than initially reported in the salmon die-off on Newfoundland's south coast, and the licences of Northern Harvest Sea Farms have been suspended, Fisheries and Land Resources Minister Gerry Byrne said Friday afternoon.
In late August salmon being raised in open net pens in the Fortune Bay area began dying due to high water temperatures, according to Northern Harvest Sea Farms.
"I am suspending all affected Northern Harvest Seafood Farms licences and issuing a directive that requires the company to continue the cleanup of the sites," Byrne said in an emailed statement.
