Sustainability Economics +3 more

CHILE - At the end of last month, inspectors from the South Korean Ministry of Aquaculture toured around Chilean facilities to explore their potential to export fish heads.

The result of this tour could mean the opening of an important market for Chile.

The tour began with the delegates meeting with officials from the Chilean Ministry of Fisheries in Santiago. The tour then went to the regions of Aysen and Magallanes to see firsthand the quality of the facilities.

Chilean officials hope that a positive evaluation by Korean inspectors could mean that South Korea would allow the import of all species from Chile.

It is expected that a decision will be made in early 2012 for the approval of fish heads to be exported to South Korea.
