This industry has experienced a growing demand for products guaranteeing food safety, the necessity of maintaining the industry’s image at a high international standard and the efficient environmentally-sustainable production of fish resulting in high quality products. The above are just some of the reason why Marine Farm has invested in the latest recirculation and water treatment technologies, thus leading the evolution of the Chilean aquaculture industry.
With over 15 years in the area, Marine Farm developed Los Chilcos recirculation Eco-hatchery project in 2005 at the edge of Los Chilcos estuary, approximately 3 km from the main road between Villarrica and Pucon. It also developed the La Union recirculation Eco-hatchery in the Puyuhuapi area in the Eleventh region. The stages from egg incubation to smolt take place at these hatcheries.
In aquaculture, water recirculation is the process that recovers and reuses water being thrown away in traditional open-flow systems and disposed for having lost one or more of the attributes that make it suitable for cultivation processes.
