The inserted picture shows a fish processing facility located in Silvia, Cauca (Colombia). The facility processes rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). This processing plant belongs to “Apropesca” -Association of producers and traders of aquaculture and agricultural products of Silvia.
This processing plant -as expected- targets to enhance the quality of marketed trout whether for national and international markets in addition to securing a constant supply of fish in the market.
The main product of the plant is the frozen rainbow trout. However, smoked trout may be produced upon specific requests.
It may worth noting that the annual production of rainbow trout from aquaculture in Colombia slightly exceeds 6000 tons.
