19 10 35 Escapees captured in sea close to farms 7–9 Unknown
  1. Samples 8–18 were collected on the three rainbow trout farms located in the fjord where the escapees were captured. Samples 1–7 were collected from different locations throughout Norway and were not regarded as potential sources of origin for the escapees (sample 19). SSF = Stolt Sea Farms, ISV = Ilsvåg, AG = Aqua Gen, AL = Alf Lone, SB = Salmobreed.
