The collapse of an Atlantic salmon net pen in August wasn’t the first trouble the facility had.

A report to state regulators says the collapse of the net pen off Cypress Island last August was preceded by a serious breakdown less than a month earlier in which nearly half of its anchor lines snapped.

The Seattle Times reports the owner of the net pen, Cooke Aquaculture, has filed a chronology of the collapse that spewed more than 160,000 adult Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound.

More than 100,000 of those fish are still unaccounted for.
