Nova Austral is appealing $1.5 million fine because of inadequate mortality and solid waste management at its Aracena 19 grow-out center, based in Chile’s Alberto de Agostini national park. Chile’s Superintendency of the Environment identify up to five infractions between 2016-2018.
The fine was imposed on the company over alleged activities that occurred during a production cycle. Prior to the restructuring of the company’s administration. Specifically, Nova Austral failed to send a digitized copy of its daily mortality control log corresponding to the two year production cycle.
Regarding this, the company has condemned the allegations of infractions. Thereby, it had commissioned an internal and independent investigation to identify and address errors.
Finally, Nova Austral has tried to renew its internal management structure, deploying numerous measures to correct operating errors. Also, strengthening ethical and compliance standards.
