Chilean salmon producer Salmones Camanchaca has left Chinese market joint venture New World Currents to continue its own distribution in China.

The exit leaves Blumar, Granja Marina Tornagaleones and Cultivos Yadran as remaining members and a reduced 18 percent of total Chilean production.

"Salmones Camanchaca's departure is regrettable since it has been an important partner since the beginning of the organization," said New World Currents Executive Director Eduardo Goycoolea.
