The threat of renewed attacks on Chilean salmon producers' property will not immediately go away even if a new constitution enshrining the rights of indigenous groups in the South American nation is approved in a nationwide referendum on Sept. 4, experts say.

In recent years the salmon farming industry has become unwittingly ensnared in the fight for indigenous land rights with sporadic attacks on installations and vehicles transporting fish.

Attacks on trucks carrying farmed salmon such as the one in July 2021 brought the struggle for indigenous rights into sharp focus, and has left the industry at a loss for how to approach the movement.
