    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?

        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. .
