Chile | Salmon farming company will voluntarily remove pens from newly expanded NP

SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Chile salmon farmer Nova Austral plans to pull the pens it uses to raise salmon from the ocean waters off a national park near the southern tip of Chilean Patagonia, its chief executive said on Thursday.


A recent expansion of Chile’s Alberto de Agostini National Park left the company’s pens within park boundaries. The sprawling coastal park is home to several tidewater glaciers, deepwater fjords and a mountain range named after English naturalist Charles Darwin.
