Several Chilean companies took advantage of the organisation of the 19th European Seafood Exposition (ESE), which takes place until 5 May in Brussels, Belgium, to promote a wide range of seafood.

The firms participating in this fair are Cisandina Chile, Empresas AquaChile, Geomar, Demex, Martesano, Pesquera Pacifíco Austral, Salmones Pacific Star, The Chef from Patagonia and several exporters from Coquimbo Region.

The main products offered in a area of 184 square meters are: salmon, trout, swordfish, shrimp, velvet crab, king crab, clams, cuttlefish, abalone, loco, oysters, mussels and macroalgae.

The exhibition, which is considered the largest seafood fair in Europe, offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet with importers, distributors and sector people.

"We are focused on supporting our entrepreneurs to open new markets. Besides, we deal with the sustainability as an opportunity for differentiation and further associative development of our sector to become more competitive," said the director of ProChile, Félix de Vicente.

For the company Pesquera Pacífico Austral, this is the tenth year at the ESE. According to general manager Peter Veganzones, the participation in this event is essential to maintain customer relationships and make contacts that will generate new business.

AquaChile with 25 per cent of the surface under the Chilean flag offers salmon, trout and tilapia, commonly exports to over 50 countries in the five continents.

In this regard, commercial manager of AquaChile, Franco Adam, expressed to Aqua: "The company has been involved in this important international exhibition for over nine years. As the largest producer of coho salmon and trout in the world, this is an excellent opportunity to maintain personal contact and to share time with our wide range of clients from all over the world. "

"The sector is expectant and wants Chile to revert the effects of the virus of salmon infectious anemia (ISA), which diminished the production of Atlantic salmon to a third. It is understood that the measures and the new regulatory framework that the sector has adopted are of the highest standard, giving it a new sustainability-oriented approach with a long term aim," added the executive.

Meanwhile, Julio Marambio, Geomar Export manager, assured that the results achieved in this fair "play a strategic role" for the company because they contribute to the production plan of the year.

According to the Undersecretary of Fisheries (Subpesca), in 2010 fishery and aquaculture resource shipments abroad generated USD 3,577 million, while a year earlier they had totaled USD 3,798 million.

Last year, 31.6 per cent of the total went to Japan, with shipments for USD 1,128 million; 16.9 per cent to the USA, with USD 603 million; and 8.8 per cent to China, with USD 316 million, among other destinations.
