As a whole, the Chilean port system is made up of 28 major ports, 19 of which are exposed to the Pacific Ocean. During tidal waves, port operations at these ports are suspended to ensure the safety of ships, cargo and workers.

Other Media | FishFocus: ASC portal enables enhanced data submission

Thursday, September 01, 2022

The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) is transitioning the way in which farm-related spatial data are submitted. Their new GIS (Geographic Information System) Data Form v1.2 allows producers to locate and digitise their farm perimeter with greater ease and confidence using the new platform. The information submitted by Units of Certification (UoCs) will then need to be verified by auditors. The new spatial data collection platform utilises ESRI’s Survey123 to create a more mature, scalable survey form with the ability to produce reliable standardised data entries.

Thursday, September 01, 2022

According to the company, it “features the industry’s smoothest buoyancy control system to alleviate fish stress and simplify operation”. Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), it can be raised and lowered by a single worker by simply opening a valve. This enables operators to avoid rough seas or significant storms that would batter traditional surface pens, protecting not only the farm’s infrastructure but also its fish stocks.
