Ventisqueros recaptured 12% of escaped salmon
Ventisqueros notified authorities of the recapture of 12% of escaped salmon from their “Tubildad” cultivation center in Chiloé, Los Lagos Region. This report comes at the end of the legal period for aquaculture companies to recapture escaped fish in accordance with the laws.
The company initially failed to opportunely notify the government of the escape and amount of lost fish.
The 12% recapture puts Ventisqueros just over the 10% minimum established by federal law; with less than 10% recapture the escape is classified as environmental damage.
