    Back from two and a half weeks in the salmon farming region of Chile. Brought a chef, retail supermarket trade association executive, TV producers, and two journalists. We are beginning our effort to showcase Chile as a producer of safe, environmentally sustainable, nutritious salmon. Looking forward to seeing the stories that former Seattle Times reporter, Ross Anderson, has written. Will post as soon as possible.

    Please have anyone who is interested send me an email: jmcknight@mcknightpr.com. The AP reporter in Chile would be a good bet. I’ve worked with the NY Times South American bureau 3 years ago, but the reporter–Alexei Barrionuevo–did a hatchet job on the industry. .

    Putting together a ”hit list” of national food and environment writers to travel to Chile to see how the salmon farming industry and government of Chile worked together to create a plan for recovering from the devastating ISA (infectious salmon anemia) virus that nearly wiped out their industry 3 years ago. Suggestions of open-minded writers welcome.

      Hi Jeanne ( @jeannemck ), thanks for the note, I know an AP reporter who lives in Chile, I will ping him over your request. Also some folks at http://journalismthatmatters.org are starting a food reporting project, it’s still in the works but can keep you in the loop as it unfolds.

      Should interested folks contact you on twitter http://twitter.com/McKandCo or do you have an email address to inquire through?
