Species Notes for this Location:
Chile has become a major producer of Salmo salar since it was introduced from Norway and Scotland in the early 1980s. Chile benefits from low production costs and easy access to fish meal for salmon feed production, which allows it to compete with Northern hemisphere producers for lucrative markets (FAO, 2009).
