Aquaculture mission to Aqua Sur, 20-23 October 2010


The Aquaculture Communications Group (ACG) in collaboration with our Chilean partners, Rodrigo Infante Varas (Synergya EIRL) and Soledad Francke A. (Business Tour Chile), will be leading a mission/tour to Aqua Sur 2010. If you have not looked at Chile as an investment opportunity or a place to expand your business interests, then think again. But you have to act fast; the closing date to register for the mission is September 15th.

The Chilean aquaculture industry is ready for business development and we have identified several areas looking for investors/partners. If any of the specific areas or related services listed below is part of your business development, you can’t miss this opportunity -

Waste management services - collection of solid wastes from hatcheries and industrial processing plants. Using a very innovative technology and service, an existing company is expanding and looking for a partner to capitalize further.

Land-based salmon production units – where the entire production chain from eggs to grow-out and harvesting can be done. The units are designed to be disease-free systems with high efficiency and productivity. Investment in complete production systems or the various components is sought.

Bio-secure ports and vessels - equipment to develop ports and vessels to be bio-secure, with proper water treatment and disinfection to prevent contamination and spread of diseases are being built.

Bio-secure transportation - equipment related to the fast and efficient movement of fish and farming equipment, and trucks or tanks that can handle all fish waste and effluents.

Processing plants – companies that are currently operating are searching to implement state-of-the-art systems for salmon or other fish species. Participation for foreign investors in companies already working is a possibility.

ACG and its partners will organize and facilitate face-to-face investment meetings with pre-qualified Chilean firms seeking investor and/or partners. Translators will be provided, if required.

An International Investment Meeting will take place on 19-21 October in Puerto Montt in conjunction with Aqua Sur. ACG is in touch with the event organizers and can supply interested firms with more specific information if desired; contact us at
