Chile's Atlantic salmon harvest down 3.9 percent in H1

Trout harvest also below levels of a year ago. Coho production surges, though.

Chile farmed salmon harvests reached 323,000 metric tons through June, a slight decrease of 0.3 percent from the same period a year earlier.

These figures show a normalization following the algal bloom of 2016, which affected production volumes of the first three months of the year.

Atlantic salmon harvests in the first half of the year were 257,000 metric tons, 3.9 percent below harvests of the same period a year earlier.

Trout harvests were 41,000 metric tons, a decrease of 2.2 percent compared with the same period last year, and coho harvests increased 75 percent year on year, to a total 25,000 metric tons.
