Prince, Princess of Japan Visit Salmon Farming Plants in Southern Chile

SANTIAGO Prince Akishino of Japan and his wife, Kiko, visited on Saturday Puerto Montt, southern Chile, and a joint Japan-Chile salmon cultivation project.

The couple toured the various salmon farms, an initiative with which Japan has strongly cooperated.

Restrictions on the capture of salmon in the northern hemisphere have led Japan to devise a plan to grow this type of fish in the South American country.

In fact, the city of Puerto Montt was the setting for the launch of a book last April that recounts the origins of the Chilean salmon industry, recalling the Chilean-Japanese collaboration, as well as the pending challenges of the sector.

Salmon farming is one of the most important industrial activities in Chile, being the second largest producer in the world.

The royal couple in Chile, who have had a busy schedule of activities, including a visit to the Palace of La Moneda, where they were received by President Michelle Bachelet, ends their official visit Sunday.
