Chilean salmon exports to China are expected to continue improving in 2023 after rebounding by 52 percent in the first 11 months of 2022.

From January to November, gross weight shipments totaled 24,000 metric tons, according to customs data cited by the Chilean Salmon Council, which represents just over half of Chile's salmon production.

"This reflects the dynamism that Chinese demand for Chilean salmon had last year, a situation that we hope will be maintained or improve by 2023, with the positive impact that this would have for the southern macro-zone of Chile," said Loreto Seguel, who was named executive director of the Chile Salmon Council on Dec 1.
