The salmon industry forecasts encouraging prospects for the sector this year, which is reflected in requests to the Service of Environmental Assessment (SEA) for a series of projects related to increasing the productive capacity of the salmon companies.

Late last year, numerous companies operating in the Region of Aysen, Los Lagos and La Aracauria, presented requests to the organization in order to extend the capabilities of their farms.

In the region of Aysen, Acuinova presented three projects to SEA to enhance production capacity of three of its cultivation centers. The firm's objective is to move from 3,887 tonnes anually to 14,244 tonnes, with an investment of USD 2.6 million.

The first center is located in Isla Dring, Estero Bhutan, the second on the island of Rivero, Pulluche Canal and the third is located in Ensenada Acantilada, all in the province of Aysen.

For its part, the salmon company Los Fiordos intends to expand by opening a fattening center for salmonids to be located in the area of Isla Canal in Aysen. For this purpose, they asked the sanctioning body to extend their maximum production to 4,000 tonnes of fish per year, compared to the 2,500 tonnes at present.

Also in the Los Lagos region, Marine Harvest Chile S.A. handed in a request to the SEA demanding a modification of their technical project to expand salmon farming center in Conchas Blancas.

This center will be installed in the Conchas Blancas Sector (Punta Coñao) Hudson Canal, on the island of Chiloe, and will cost USD 2 million.

In the Region of La Araucanía, Piscicultura Los Ríos requested to install a salmon fish farm in Putúe Bajo under the commune of Villarrica, with an estimated investment of USD 5 million.

The company plans for a production of 1,000 tonnes during the first year and for it to double from the second year.

Also, the fish farming company Melipeuco, which is owned by Invertec, and, El Turbio, which is located in Pucon, submitted projects to the SEA.
