A new report looking at Chiles salmon stocks has concluded that the stocks are being affected by Infectious Salmon Anemia or ISA. Chile is known to be one of the five most productive marine areas in the world with over 2600 miles of coast line.
Salmon is one of Chiles biggest exports growing eight fold in recent years, it specializes in farmed salmon . However the industry has come under fire recently by experts saying that the conditions for the fish are overcrowded and unclean leading to an increase in the cases of Infectious anemia. Also unreal amounts of antibiotics have been used to treat the problem in fact 325 tonnes in 2008.
Chiles reputation has been badly hurt and American stores such as Safeway and Walmart have decided not to purchase fish from Chile as a result.
Alaskan Harvest Seafood only supplies wild line caught salmon, free of disease and antibiotics so you can feel good about your purchase.
