Eighteen salmon farming firms and the Salmon Technological Institute (Intesal) will work together to carry out this study, which will be carried out by the Fisheries Development Institute (IFOP). This initiative also seeks to operate under the high environmental standards of the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification.

Having as one of the main objectives to comply with the environmental standards of the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification, which validates the operation of the different salmon producing companies, the purpose was set to carry out an investigation into the potential feralization of salmon in aquatic environments in southern Chile.

Since the beginning of 2023, conversations began between salmon producing companies, achieving the commitment of 18 firms, and the Salmon Technological Institute (Intesal) as coordinator, to work on different matters that will be addressed in a study carried out by the Fisheries Development Institute (IFOP)

The focus will be on controlling the risks associated with the escape of fish with measures based on the collection of information, which will allow progress in a better understanding and knowledge of issues related to evaluating areas of risk of wild salmonids (salar and coho) and determine the reproductive potential of these species in the southern zone. Along these lines, the IFOP will be required to develop bases for a leak monitoring system.

"We are proud to be able to carry out this collective work between the production companies, which will allow us to jointly study and achieve important findings on the feralization of salmon in the aquatic environment, and thus be able to address an issue so fundamental for our productive sector," said the Intesal Research Coordinator, Felipe Tucca.

The study will be carried out within the period 2023-2025, in common agreement between the companies Australis, Cermaq, Multi-X, Salmones Aysén, Salmones Austral, Blumar, Camanchaca, Ventisqueros, Yadrán, Salmones Antártica, Aquachile, Cooke Aquaculture Chile, Invermar, Marine Farm; Mowi, Nova Austral, Caleta Bay, Salmones de Chile and Intesal.

SalmonChile and the Salmon Council will also participate in the design and governance of the project, which is coordinated by Intesal.
