Camanchaca have published their second annual sustainability report, which outlines their performance in 2015 across a number of important sustainability indicators, including: fish health and welfare, environmental impact, regulatory compliance, and community engagement.

Highlights include:

  • News of Camanchaca's first ASC certification – hopefully the first of many
  • The company's continued 3-star award from GAA’s Best Aquaculture Practice program – the first of its kind awarded to a salmon producer
  • Their continued efforts in environmental improvements including a 17 percent reduction in the use of antibiotics and another year with no fish escapes
  • Camanchaca's work with WWF Chile and The Blue Whale Centre on conserving the local ecosystems to support the continued livelihoods of these beautiful creatures off the coast of Patagonia
  • An update across a number of exciting social activities the company have run as part of their Camanchaca Amiga program
While Camanchaca are pleased with their progress in 2015, sustainability is a continuous journey and they invite you to take a look through their Sustainability Report to see how they are continually seeking to better integrate sustainability efforts into their day to day actions.
