Frederico Füllgraf, Santiago de Chile, for Mundus maris
With its 4,000 kilometers of coastline, Chile is, ahead of Japan, the sixth largest fishing industry in the world, but the world's third largest producer of farmed salmon. The industrially guided salmon farming is concentrated on the coast of Chilean Patagonia with an area of 19,893 hectares of marine concessions from the state and annual sales of 2.0 billion Euros. Ever since 2008, salmon farming in Chile is, however, in the crossfire of criticism.
