Density regulation is the result of consensus between industry and government, says SalmonChile

The president of the Association of Salmon Industry AG (SalmonChile), Maria Eugenia Wagner, argues that the regulation of density "is an important step for the industry" and "a reasonable measure" in which the government worked with the industry.

"We must continue working together with the agenda, facing future challenges, such as carrying capacity, institutions and seek greater efficiency in the regulation," pointed out the leader.

Last Tuesday, in the first session of the National Aquaculture Commission the proposed Faming Density Regulation was presented for the Concession Clusters. This initiative is the result of joint efforts of the members of the industry and the Chilean Executive.

The regulation is part of the regulatory programme that includes the 44 measures encouraged by SalmonChile, the modification of the law and the implementation of the 16 rules the authority decided to create and improve in order to reduce the health risk, Aqua reported.

The first stage of this legislation will begin operating in 2013 while the second phase will begin in 2014 and 2015.

The rules will regulate the number of fish that the companies can put at sea, depending on the health behavior of the neighbourhood in which they operate.

The top of the density will be 17 kilograms per cubic metre for Atlantic salmon; and 12 kg/m3 for Pacific salmon and trout.

"The new regulation has two elements: one of them is individual and is intended to reduce the stocking process in those farms with losses exceeding 15 per cent; and the other is a group one, which aims to reduce farming density on site according to the level of risk the neighbourhood has, using a risk score based on productive and health elements," stated Wagner.

"However, if a centre in a neighbourhood has good results, the centre will be rewarded with higher density," he said.

Undersecretary for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Pablo Galilea, admitted that the new production model will make costs increase. But he stressed: "This will be quite marginal, if one considers production volumes, compared to the damage we could have if we failed to obtain a healthy industry."

Galilea emphasized that the main objective of the production model and of this regulation is to have a relief from the health and environmental viewpoints so that virus episodes such as that of the infectious salmon anemia (ISA) do not take place again.

Moreover, he insisted that the difficulties currently faced by the salmon industry are a "market problem."

"This is due to the fact that the industry and the State had the capacity to create the conditions for the post- ISA recovery to take place sooner than thought," he said, so "the economic complications that some companies are undergoing have nothing to do with health because that has worked very well."
