Security ring placed around Chile ISA site

Chilean authorities have thrown a security zone around an area where infectious salmon anemia (ISA) was detected at a production site belonging to a joint venture between Salmones Austral’s Trusal and Nova Austral. The outbreak at the Navarro 3 site bordering the Magallanes and Antarctic regions of Chile is currently affecting fish in two of the company’s cages which together hold around 172,311 salmon, with an average weight of 430.4 grams. The financial impact of the outbreak is expected to be around $700,000, according to Salmones Austral CEO Gaston Cortez Quezada.
