Fish Farmer - - World News -

THE Chilean gov­ern­ment an­nounced new reg­u­la­tions in June to im­prove con­trol of its salmon farm­ing in­dus­try.

These in­clude re­duc­ing farm­ing den­si­ties, re­vis­ing fal­low­ing poli­cies and in­creas­ing pro­duc­tion pe­ri­ods to avoid con­cen­tra­tions of har­vests at the same time.

Management zones will be in­tro­duced and farm­ers who ex­pand pro­duc­tion by more than three per cent in a given cy­cle will be pun­ished.

The mea­sures, ex­pected to be im­ple­mented later his year, also cover con­tain­ment and waste management.
