Chile plans deepwater salmon farm to reverse poor yields – UPI.com

If at first you don’t succeed…  Make it bigger and use copper mesh!  The logic is amazing.  I’ve seen the fish farms first hand off the coast of Chiloe and I’m suprised they could even get bigger.  Kudos, Chile, this is idea is about as brilliant as the “completo”

SANTIAGO, Chile, Jan. 12 (UPI) — Chile will launch its first deepwater salmon farming project with a Norwegian loan to try and reverse the low yields on salmon amid constant global demand.

The offshore project is the brainchild of a Chilean business group that has been pledged $40 million by Norwegian banks, with the promise it can have access to more funds if the venture takes off.

Disease and economic downturn have hit Chile’s salmon industry hard over the past two years. Conventional fish farms have reported loss of stocks due to viral attacks and bacteria that decimate fish stocks in great numbers.
