It is Steinvik Fiskefarm AS that has been charged the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE), after Riselva was dry-laid for almost two and a half hours on 21 September 2017.
– We are very serious about violations of minimum water requirements. For the sake of life in the river, water should always be sufficiently released. Release of minimum water flow is a crucial prerequisite for getting the license to use the water from Riselva to the hatchery, says Mari Hegg Gundersen, section manager for NVE’s environmental inspection for river systems.
Steinvik Fiskefarm can lodge a complaint with the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy within three weeks.
