Today on TalentView I had the opportunity to interview Dali Molina. She works at Billund, a Danish company that specializes in designing and implementing, as well as providing services within recirculating fish farms, with operations in Chile. Dali is a 31 years old Marine Biotechnology and Aquaculture Engineer from Universidad de Concepcion.
Chile is the second-largest Salmon producer in the world. The South American country has a general GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of 298.2 Billion USD as of 2018. Salmon production makes up 95% of the Aquaculture and Fisheries production activity in the country. These industries represented an overall GDP of 1.05% back in 2012.
Being such an important industry worldwide, many big companies from other big producing countries have seen the opportunity to invest and make the industry grow a lot more. Companies like Marine Harvest, Cermaq, Billund, Australis, and a lot of others, have promoted production in Chile.
