A salmon escape was reported Friday from salmon cages operated by Granja Marina Tornagaleones in the Aysen region, according to Chile’s National Service of Fisheries and Aquaculture (Sernapesca).

The company, which farms salmon and trout, found evidence of salmon outside the pen during ordinary operations.

The site is in the middle of harvesting, with fish weighing roughly 5 kilos.

Sernapesca confirmed the farm followed the proper steps following the discovery.
