Dr. Renato Quiñones, INCAR Director, participated in the Intesal’s new Science Plan for Salmon Farming

On Thursday, May 18th, the Director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Aquaculture Research, Dr. Renato Quiñones, participated in the presentation of the new Science Plan for Salmon Farming, developed by the Salmon Technological Institute (Intesal) of SalmonChile. The event, held in Puerto Varas, began with a presentation by the astronomer and National Prize for Exact Sciences, José Maza. Following this, a panel discussion moderated by the research coordinator of Intesal, Felipe Tuca, took place, which included the participation of experts Javiera Cornejo, Sandra Marín, Angélica Barroso, Félix Godoy, and the Director of INCAR.

The Science Plan aims to define a research baseline to establish the impact of the activity on subjects such as biodiversity, marine funds, oceanography and nutrients, coastal governance and water resources. It will also seek to establish strategic alliances with researchers from universities and relevant scientific institutions in the study of aquaculture, both in Chile and abroad.
