The industry is principally focused on constructing social capital, which is supported by SalmonChile. This requires a strong regional commitment to the main stakeholders, accordingly, it jointly works with people employed by the industry and local independent fishermen, whilst maintaining a relationship with indigenous peoples. It also works through area committees that take responsibility for their own area.
Companies are increasingly committed to making progress on this issue, with greater transparency, environmental ethics, good practices, constructive dialogue, regional commitment and solidarity. All of which bring us closer to generating shared value in the industry’s local neighborhoods.
The industry contributes directly to municipal funds by paying for aquaculture licenses granted by the corresponding local municipality. These payments make a significant contribution that supports their diverse social policies, enabling them to create projects and contribute to local employment. This specific tax levied on the sector benefited 36 municipalities in southern Chile in 2017 and a total of $9,183,138,457 was paid by SalmonChile member compaines. This amount was divided between the National Regional Development Fund and the respective municipalities, and was contributed by the companies associated with SalmonChile A.G.
