The photo shows a model of cage farming in Chile. Depending on water bodies and quality, the principal species produced in cages in Chile are Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar), Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), King Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) and Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Monoculture is the only system practiced in cage farming in Chile.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
