Chile Opens Salmon Research Centre

CHILE - Chiles salmon business has suffered under the effects of disease in recent months, but one company is on the hunt for solutions.

According to The Patagonia Times, EWOS Innovations, the research arm of a Norway-based aquaculture giant Cermaq, just opened Chiles first state-of-the-art research facility near Puerto Montt.

If you want to be a big player in the salmon industry, you have to do research, Javier Gonzalez, general manager of EWOS Innovation Chile, told the news agency.

EWOS is the largest feed supplier to salmon aquaculture operations in the country. Cermaq, its parent company, also owns Mainstream, one of Chiles biggest producers of farmed salmon.
