Processes

HATCHING

Our company has five open-flow incubation rooms and one with a recirculation system, which allows us a simultaneous incubation capacity of more than 10.000.000 eggs. The eggs that enter our fish farms are provided with all sanitary certifications allowing us to guarantee an incubation and free hatching of diseases. Likewise, we are focused on ensuring the control of water quality, the physicochemical parameters and the biosecurity of the water used in our hatcheries.

 

FIRST FEED AND FRY

Once hatching and reabsorption of the yolk sac has occurred, the fry are transferred to our first feeding rooms. This is a crucial stage in the life of our fish, taking them from the incubation room to the fish tanks to eat at the optimum moment, which added to an adequate diet, allows us to ensure the production of high quality smolts. During this stage, the fish are graduated and distributed by sizes in the different fish tanks, waiting to reach 50 to 60 gr. and finally be transferred to our smoltification areas.

SMOLTIFICACIÓN

The smoltification constitutes a real metamorphosis that involves osmoregulation, behavior, metabolism and morphology of the fish, allowing them to carry out the transition from fresh water to salt water, being crucial for its survival and growth in the sea. Our challenge is to achieve this process through photoperiod strategies. During this stage, we vaccinate the fish according to health strategies that are defined regarding the needs of our customers.

Circular Economy

Salmonífera Dalcahue, has proposed to promote the concept of Circular Economy within its processes of sludge treatment, reducing the environmental impact generated and giving value to a product that today we call “waste”.

The added value provided by the concept of sustainability and environmental care is appreciated not only within the industry itself but also by those related to it. Therefore, reusing sludge as an organic raw material is a challenge which Salmonífera Dalcahue undertook to achieve.

In June of 2017, the company implemented the first Eco efficient system in Chile to treat their sludge and today, they are working on the installation of the second and last step so to achieve the proposed goal and obtain an organic product, valued and sustainable.
