*Due to an internal accounting error, the total volume of ASC certified salmon was recorded incorrectly from March 2016 until October 2016. This mistake was detected and corrected by the ASC during an internal review. Our procedures to ensure that numbers are recorded accurately have recently been revised to ensure correct numbers in the future.
