Salmones Yadran general manager José Miguel Barriga strongly condemned a case of abuse of a sea lion in Melinka, Aysen Region, involving the company personnel.

"There are no reasons for an event like this," stated the executive.

"We will deliver our full support to the competent authorities to investigate this situation and determine responsibilities. It is without prejudice that our company has already started an investigation, both internally and to the service providers in order to verify the events that have occurred," added Barriga.

The entrepreneur ensured that the company "is governed by strict environmental policies" that it transmits both to its workers and to the suppliers so that the situation that has been reported is "alien" to its regulation and the board’s ethical principles.

The Association of the Chilean Salmon Industry AG (SalmonChile) also announced its condemnation of such acts of violence and said it is collecting the background to assist in the investigation.

For the union, such acts should be punished in a "decisive way."

Yadran’s response stems from a complaint filed by the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (SERNAPESCA) in the Court of Aysen, for Animal Abuse and Cruelty -- according to the Law on Animal Protection – and for capturing and processing the species during the banned period, according to the General Law on Fisheries and Aquaculture (LGPA).

SERNAPESCA took this decision after the publication on Tuesday of images shwoing a group of employees of a salmon farm capturing and assaulting an adult male sea lion, which they ended up killing.

According to what was indicated by the complainant, the fact would have happened in September 2014.

The regional director of SERNAPESCA Aysen, Cristian Hudson, considered that there is sufficient evidence for it to be deemed as a crime of abuse or animal cruelty, so he requested the prosecution to carry out an investigation of the facts and that "those responsible for such deplorable conduct must be pursued".

For his part, the national director of SERNAPESCA, Jose Miguel Burgos, ensured that given the seriousness of these facts, he will make use of the necessary actions to ensure that those responsible are punished.
