ISA Outbreak Sparks Salmon Company Share Price Drop

15 April 2013, at 1:00am

CHILE - Following an outbreak of Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA) at a Multiexport Foods salmon farm, the company experienced a drop in its share prices towards the end of last week.

Despite the government's trust in its biosecurity and monitoring practice, the recent outbreak may be leading to a decline in confidence of the industry, as some salmon producers experienced a decline in their share price.

TheSantiagoTimes reported that Multiexport Foods' share price fell 4.54 per cent on the Santiago Stock Exchange.
