Chile is aiming to replicate a recent deal with Brazil and Argentina to keep the flow of salmon exports moving to China and Russia for the duration of the coronavirus health crisis, Chile's National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca) said.

Under the deal with Chile's South American neighbors, salmon farmers and other exporters of foods for human consumption are able to file phytosanitary paperwork through a five-step online process overseen by inspectors on both sides of the customs border.
