Blumar Seafoods is a world-class enterprise dedicated to fishing and aquaculture.
With over 60 years of experience in the industry, we have excelled in the development of quality products while maintaining harmony with the environment.
Our fishing products are frozen horse mackerel for human consumption and fishmeal and fish oil for the production of animal feed.
In the case of salmon, this product is sold fresh or frozen and its main destination is the United States, where we have a subsidiary for distribution throughout the country. Other important markets are Brazil and the rest of Latin America, Europe and Asia.
We are also present in the Chilean retail market through El Golfo Comercial, a leading brand in Chile.
Through our St. Andrews affiliate we produce and sell mussels, and through Pacific Blu we sell hoki products, breaded hoki and other whitefish derivatives.
The growing global demand for seafood and the decline in commercial fishing, position aquaculture as a viable way to continue feeding future generations. On the other hand, the coast of Chile delivers multiple advantages to develop aquaculture in an effective and beneficial way.
Blumar is a vertically integrated company, owning all production stages from catching to the sale of products.
It operates its own fleet, which includes equipment with the latest technology in navigation, communication, monitoring and fishing systems, staffed by highly skilled crews.
100% of the fleet in operation is equipped with RSW (refrigerated seawater system) to preserve the freshness of fish.
Blumar also maintains external sources for delivery of fish through the artisan fleet, which plays an important role in our fishing operation.
