First Worldwide Large-Scale Project Joins Salmon Farming and Aquaponics. – Lago Sofía

Chile: Lago Sofía SpA in conjunction with the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry Engineering of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and Pentair are the partners involved in this initiative.

As Salmonexpert anticipated last week, Lago Sofía SpA in conjunction with the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry Engineering of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and Pentair Chile signed an MOU for the creation of a technological nucleus for the intensive production of vegetables, 12 kilometers from the city of Puerto Montt.

According to the press release, this is an unprecedent collaborative initiative in the country that allows the reuse of water, energy and nutrients from the salmon smolts production in controlled systems, for the growth of vegetables.

“Our faculty is very excited to making further progress in research and the development of integrated production systems, especially if this means reusing a scarce resource such as water” says Rodrigo Figueroa PhD, Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry Engineering.

Miguel Portus, Manager of Strategic Growth at Lago Sofía thinks that the signing of this agreement “is an important step to moving forward into a salmon farming that is more aligned with circular economy” and anticipates that the first vegetable sowings at the new production facilities are expected in the next 12 months.

Finally, Juan Pablo Barrales, Sales and Administration Manager at Pentair Chile, the company that will put the technology for the efficient use of water points out that “all three institutions that signed this agreement share the idea of producing food in a sustainable way, in harmony with the needs of the surroundings and the Environment”. He also remarks that “this is the first initiative worldwide that joins salmon farming and aquaponics commercially and at a large scale.”
