Aquaculture in Chile and Latin America in brief
Chile is known as the second largest salmon producing nation in the world, and salmon is by far the dominant species farmed in Chile. Chile has a well-established aquaculture and fish/seafood processing industry today and the Chilean aquaculture sector is playing a key role in the national economy.
The aquaculture industry in Chile has been dominated by off shore farming of salmon in sea based cages, however the industry in Chile is currently seeing a shift where large producers closes inland lake smolt facilities to look at the oppotunities within land-based fish farming. This shift is encouraged by sustainability requirements from the market and authorities. Several of the large players in the Chilean aquaculture industry has already started investing massively in land-based RAS facilities as a replacement for among other lake-based hatcheries being closed down. The largest salmon producer in Chile "AquaChile" has for instance already spent 35 mio USD in land-based facilities and more investments are expected from "AquaChile" in 2020.
The Chilean government represented by the Undersecretariat of Fisheries and Aquaculture under the Ministry of Economy (known as ‘SUBPESCA’) is introducing a number of new regulations related to the aquaculture industry, including an online monitoring system of several environmental and oceanographic parameters. Another regulation recently approved is strengthening the norms for the structural specifications of cages to avoid recurring escapes. Other upcoming regulations seek to improve the monitoring and reporting of incidents of contact with mammals at production sites.
SUBPESCA and the Ministry of the Environment in Chile is aiming at introducing regulations and agreements with the industry to increase the transparency of the production and to reduce the environmental footprint of the aquaculture industry.
The aquaculture industry has commited to taking actively part in this process, why the industry currently sees several initiatives and an increased engagement in sustainable production. This can offer new opportunities also for Danish supppliers of solutions and technology to the Chilean aquaculture industry and affiliated fish/seafood processing industry.
Not only Chile is an interesting market in Latin and South America; other large aquaculture producing countries as Peru, Brazil, Columbia and Ecuador sees growth and at the same time still have large unexploited potential for growth within the aquaculture industry.
