- NIVA-rapport 
Chile is the world’s biggest salmon producer after Norway. The production efficiency is still far less in selected areas, and the impact of water qualityis one of the main reasons. NIVA has unique competence in providing advisory services to the aquaculture industry, and identified Chile is a potential new market to be focus on. This report provides an overview of the results of a pre-feasibility study of establishing in Chile as a long term activity. Establishment of an own analytical laboratory was considered essential at the beginning. However, new and promising initiatives appeared during the study making it possible to focus on providing advisory services. A limited liability company was formed to provide consultancy services and the establishment of an own analytical facility will be postponed. NIVA’s accredited laboratory in Oslo will function as a temporary and back-up solution at the initial stage.
