Chile’s territory includes approximately 4,000 kilometers of coastline and 110,000 km2 of ocean. In the Los Ríos (X) and Aysén (XI) regions, its coastline is protected by fjords, estuaries and archipelagos that create the conditions that the country needs to be a leader in fishing and aquaculture.
Camanchaca is a major player in the Chilean mussel farming industry thanks to its extensive concessions off the coasts of Chiloé and its constant pursuit of efficiency throughout the production chain, which enables it to sustainably produce the Chilean mussel. This essentially organic product is very environmentally safe, rich in nutrients and low cost. It also generates employment and development in isolated areas.
The Company also has abalone farming operations in the Atacama (III) Region. Its more than 1,000 land-based, open-flow tanks make it Chile’s leading producer of abalone, which are highly valued on Asian markets for their delicate texture and taste.
