Another HISTORIC Ruling: A Chilean Court orders salmon pharmer MOWI to release their antibiotic data


A huge victory for conservation group Oceana as a Chilean court orders net-pen salmon pharmer MOWI to release their antibiotics data.



"In 2021, over 460 tons of antibiotics were used to produce salmon in Chile, a 33% increase from the year prior. Salmon farming, as pictured here in Chile, often uses an excessive amount of antibiotics that can be released into the ocean and harm ecosystems, marine life, and even human health."


“This is a historic ruling. For years, the court allowed information about the use of antibiotics in salmon farming to remain behind closed doors,” Javiera Calisto, Oceana’s Campaign Manager, Chile

“This is a historic ruling. For years, the court allowed information about the use of antibiotics in salmon farming to remain behind closed doors,” Javiera Calisto, Oceana’s Campaign Manager in Chile, explained. “This decision sets a new constitutional precedent for any future cases regarding public access to data on pollutants that can harm the environment and marine life.”
