Chile Salmon and Trout Exports Grew 48% Last Year, Tercera Says

Chile exported a record $2.9 billion of salmon and trout last year, up 48 percent from 2010 as the industry recovers from the impact of a virus that damaged fish stocks from 2008, La Tercera said, citing the country’s customs agency.

Production will increase gradually this year, the Santiago- based newspaper reported in its print edition today, citing Carlos Odebret, chief executive officer of industry association SalmonChile.
