Chile


Overview

While GAPI only assesses salmon production in Chile, three salmon species—Atlantic, Chinook, and coho— comprised 73% of Chilean marine finfish production in 2007. Chile’s country score (65) exceeds the global average country score (59), placing it within the top half of country scores. Chile performs similarly across the three salmon species, with scores in the mid- to high 60s for all salmon.

When taking total production into account, Chile’s cumulative score drops to 30—the second-worst cumulative performance score of all assessed countries. The cumulative score reflects the tremendous industrial and ecological energetic footprint of the Chilean salmon farming industry in addition to the numerous scale-related waste and biological impacts.
