Nova Austral is a Chilean salmon farmer and processor, owned by the equity funds Altor Fund III and Bain Capital. The company’s entire operations are located in Chile’s 12th Region, in the Magallanes and Antarctic Region, over 2,500 km from Santiago, the country’s capital city.
Pristine Antarctic waters run through our farms, located in an icy region close to the Chilean Antarctic. Far from everything; far from other salmon farmers and in one of Chile’s most isolated regions.
Our salmon enjoy low, stable water temperatures all year long, and benefit from low density farms to grow healthy and strong.
