Editorial: Chile Taking Measures to Beat Health and Environmental Issues

The authorities and the aquaculture industry in Chile are starting to get to grips with the ISA virus and sea lice crisis and the problems that poor management and environmental care has had in recent years.

The implementation of new sanitary requirements are expected to increase costs for the industry, but the industry expects that these measures will only make it more sustainable in the future.

The launch of a new centre - the Aquaculture Industry Centre Aysen - by the Patagonia Ecosystems Research Centre is also expected to help the sustainability of the industry.

The project aims to contribute to regional sustainable development by providing information that will analyse and disseminate the behaviour of the local aquaculture industry, as well as its socioeconomic impact assessment and ecological impact, compliance and sustainability.

The centre will help in health and environmental issues, pollution and waste management.

Meanwhile, in Canada, protestors have been taking to the streets over what they consider to be the threat to wild salmon populations from salmon farms.
