Chilean seafood group Pesquera Camanchaca has opened its new $30 million (€28 million) plant in Coronel, central Chile. The facility will produce frozen horse mackerel.

The site, capable of processing 650 metric tons of fish per day, has 10 automatic processing lines and seven freezing tunnels.

Camanchaca plans to produce about 50,000 metric tons of frozen mackerel during the first year of operation at the plant, which was built in 12 months.
