Brazilian aquaculturists visit Chile in search of knowledge and technologies

A group from Brazil came to Puerto Montt (Los Lagos Region) on a visit to learn about aquaculture production and look into acquiring technologies.

Aquaculturists from Mato Grosso State are visiting from December 3-8. A member of the group said a primary motivation for the visit was for Brazilian producers to see new alternatives to develop sustainable cultivation methods.

The state of Mato Grosso is known for an agrobusiness of soy, corn, and wheat. Recently, the state has redoubled efforts to increase aquaculture production. Principal farmed species are the native tambaquí, pintado, pirarucú, and more recently, tilapia.

Specifically, producers were interested in production software.
