Ectosan® Vet

Variation to Marketing Authorisation enabling a second use of treatment water

An important milestone towards optimal efficiency of Benchmark's
transformational sea lice solution


Benchmark (LSE: BMK), the aquaculture biotechnology company, is pleased to
announce that it has been granted a variation to its Marketing Authorisation
("MA") for Ectosan® Vet  from the Norwegian Medicines Agency ("NoMA").


This variation to the MA enables the re-use of the treatment water for a
second batch of fish, subject to water quality being maintained to the
satisfaction of the prescribing veterinarian, therefore increasing the
efficiency of treatments. This means a producer will be able to treat a salmon
farm more efficiently with a solution that delivers more than 99% efficacy,
promotes animal welfare, reduces mortality and protects the environment -
driving sustainability in the industry.


This MA variation represents a further important step towards our goal of
optimising the efficiency of our sea lice solution, and further trials are
ongoing to support multiple re-use of treatment water.


 Trond Williksen, CEO, commented:


"We are very pleased to have been granted a variation to the Marketing
Authorisation from the Norwegian Medicines Agency. This represents an
important milestone for the Company and for the industry. Ectosan® Vet and
CleanTreat® is a much needed solution for the industry which continues to
show excellent results with efficacy above 99% as well as good operational
efficiency. It is the first medicinal solution brought to the Norwegian market
in over ten years which addresses one of the biggest challenges in salmon
production, while improving animal welfare, reducing mortality and protecting
the environment."
