Mussel supply-slump surmised

CHILE
Friday, March 12, 2010, 22:30 (GMT + 9)

The earthquake that struck the central-south area of the country Saturday 27 February is affecting the farming, processing and export of mussel (choritos), informed the Chile Farmed Mussel Producers Association (AmiChile).

The stored finished product losses in the catastrophe area and a significant number of damaged containers that were in process for export are compounded by a low supply of fresh mussel for processing from last season, revealed the second most important aquaculture union in the country. The union represents the main producers and processors of this resource in Chile.

This reduction in supply was due mainly to adverse climatologic variables that affected the mussel's growth and yield.

“We can anticipate that as a result of this natural disaster, there will be a significant reduction in the supply of the national finished product, although we know that as an industry we have solid bases to tackle this situation considering the mid and long term,” said the manager of AmiChile, Cristian Maino.

"Nevertheless, 2010 will be marked by this catastrophe and our expectations of recovery with respect to 2009 will be postponed. March should have been the strongest month for production and we don’t know if the plants will be able to operate before the first fortnight ends,” indicated the trade union leader.

"What we now hope is to bank on a normal climate that allows us to recover the time lost and meet the commitments made to our clients,” he added.

The union leader explained that due to the damage registered in routes and ports, especially in Talcahuano, delays in the processing of finished mussel exports are projected, Fishery World reports.

For this reason, the union hopes “to count on the understanding and support of end-market buyers.”

In terms of material losses that the industry must face, authorities informed of damage in diverse farming centres brought about by changes in tides. In the area of Chiloe, significant variations in tide height were observed, accompanied by currents that caused lines to collapse and be cut off.

"The magnitude of the impact varied from one centre to another, although unfortunately, some were completely lost,” Maino concluded.
