New contract to build salmon recirculation hatchery in Chile

Norwegian aquaculture products group, Akva, has signed a contract with Sealand Aquaculture to build a complete new salmon recirculation hatchery in Chile's tenth region.

This system is the second recirculation system to be delivered to Sealand Aquaculture. The first system was delivered last year.

The new system has the capacity to produce six million smolts annually in five cycles of 1.2 million smolts. The system utilises both freshwater and saltwater sources to create an optimal fish production environment through all stages of the process, from egg to smolt, with high bio-security standards.

The contract value is approximately US$5.6 million.
