A Strong Research Initiative in Aquaculture has been Established in the Southern Hemisphere

  (CHILE, 10/11/2016)

BioMar, the leading Danish aquaculture feed company has signed an agreement to purchase and utilize 30% of the Lenca research center from Aquainnovo, Chile, broadening its network of excellence research centers around the world.

The Chilean contract-research center will be renamed Aquaculture Technology Center Patagonia (ATC Patagonia). Its current design and flexibility allows for running a broad range of trials on different species and nutritional projects for developing high performance feeds, testing of new raw materials as well as exploring new nutritional solutions and sustainable diets. This facility will allow for increasing the throughput of BioMar R&D efforts and focus on the development on functional feeds and fish welfare.

Existing capacity of this technology center also allows research based on genetic resistance challenges and pathogen and parasites trials for therapeutic and preventive treatments. Furthermore, the center allows for gaining new knowledge on recirculation technology systems, assessment of chemical products, development of vaccines and product registration studies in general.

Matias Del Campo, General Manager of Aquainnovo, commented: “Aquainnovo has a state-of-the-art infrastructure and proven record of applied trials. Our team of specialists is permanently supporting our customers by being effective in developing solutions to the main technological challenges in the industry. This initiative will strengthen the technological development thanks to the synergy of knowledge that is being brought in from both companies.”

“Our research center is strongly specialized on trials for product development and validation. I am convinced that this will enhance our current offer of contract research services, which will remain open for the Global Aquaculture Industry producers and suppliers”, Matias Del Campo added.

Havard Jorgensen, Global Director of R&D of BioMar, agreed on this: “We are proud to have reached an agreement on a initiative of this level and importance in Chile. BioMar is constantly making efforts to improve our innovation capacity. We are incorporating this center to other facilities that we already utilize and it is a perfect match to our already existing feed trial units in Central America and Europe. Undoubtedly ATC Patagonia will create a positive impact on global feed development. Our highly qualified team of researchers and scientists look very much forward to use this center for their trials.”

Havard Jorgensen.

ATC Patagonia will help to accelerate the exchange of knowledge in BioMar ́s Salmon Division and thus provide solutions in every area of development to their global customers, in order to satisfy their needs in a quick and flexible way.

The ATC Patagonia covers 2.5 hectares of surface, with more than 2,000 square meters of construction. It is located 33 kilometers from Puerto Montt, on the banks of the river Lenca. Created in 2011, this aquaculture contract-research center of excellence was built targeting the highest world-class standards with regard to quality, monitoring, control and biosecurity. Later, in 2015, it was further improved and optimized, making it the most complete and modern aquaculture research center in the Southern Hemisphere.

More than 16 trials can be run simultaneously in ATC Patagonia, given the fact that it disposes of reception, quarantine and special areas for small or big scale trials, nutrition and feeding, parasites, pathogens and other multi-used areas. Everything is monitored and controlled in a recirculation system for trials in fresh water and sea water. By this trials can be carried out by simulating the complete production cycle in fish farming. The temperature can be controlled between 3º C and 28º C. The environmental impact and fish welfare are being taken care of by applying high biosecurity standards, water treatment systems and a series of standardized management practices.
