- We know that our ongoing sustainability performance is of interest to our customers, local communities and to other stakeholders. Hence, we publish this each quarter as soon as the figures are ready, says Wenche Grønbrekk, Cermaq’s Head of Sustainability and Risk.
The 10 indicators published at Cermaq.com each quarter are:

- Sea lice counts
- Absence rate
- Lost time injury rate (H1)

- Lost time frequency rate (F-value)
In Chile there were no escapes, sea lice count of average 0.6 lice (Caligus) after a winter coordinated treatment and a high use of antibiotics due to the disease SRS.
In Canada there were no escapes, low level of sea lice with one lice treatment in the quarter. Also in Canada the use of antibiotics was high in the quarter due to environmental challenges and SRS.
