CHILE - In spite of the current crisis faced by the local salmon industry Pesquera Landes will start producing salmon this year with an expected Rainbow trout harvest close to 2,500 tonnes by 2011.

According to FishfarmingXpert, he general manager of the company, Eduardo Bohorodzaner, explained to the financial journal Estrategia that Pesquera Landes will foster its three aquaculture concessions this year which are located nearby Melinka (11th Region) and were acquired to Providencia Fish Farms in 2009.

“We will perform our first sowing on April 2010 and we expect to harvest by the middle of 2011 2,500 tonnes of Rainbow trout, salmonid specie resistant to ISA virus in contrast to Atlantic salmon, with which we are going to start operations in 2011” he detailed.

This developing plan means an investment of US$ 15 million. As of today, Pesquera Landes is a major player in the local fishing industry.
