AquaChile, Chile's largest salmon farming company, has agreed to end production in the country's national parks, the government announced Wednesday.

Chile Fisheries and Aquaculture undersecretary Julio Salas said AquaChile's decision came after three months of talks, which were held with two of the three salmon companies with production sites in national parks.

A spokesperson with AquaChile confirmed the development to IntraFish.

Salas highlighted the decision as part of a commitment from new President Gabriel Boric to advance the exit of salmon companies from protected areas under "a fair transition process."
