forecasts throughout the year
    * In Norway, cold sea temperatures in January and February,

fish mortality rates in January, have contributed to the cut in
growth expectations
    * Still, overall 2018 supply growth could nevertheless hit 
percent, compared to an initiate forecast of 8-9 percent, as
frozen fish is sold from storage, he added
    * In recent weeks, salmon prices have risen on expectations
lower growth in supply
