About CSMC

About The Chilean Salmon Marketing Council

The Chilean Salmon Marketing Council (CSMC) is a U.S.-based entity dedicated to strengthening the reputation of Chilean salmon while increasing value and healthy growth for member companies. Chilean salmon is raised in the pure Antarctic waters of Patagonia, and the producers of Chilean salmon are stewards of that remarkable ecology. As the second-largest salmon producer in the world, the Chilean salmon industry brings a high quality, reliable supply of nutritious fish to market year-round. Chilean salmon producers are committed to the welfare of their salmon and dedicated to the environment. The CSMC is governed by a Chile-based executive board and managed by a U.S.-based president/executive director.
