CULTIVOS MARINOS TONGOY S.A., is a subsidiary of Fundación Chile (a leader for more than 25 years in aquaculture research in Chile), with a commercial shellfish hatchery. It was created in 1982 to produce and sell Japanese oyster (Crassostrea gigas) larvae and seeds.

It has a production capacity for 2 billion eyes larvae and 45 million seeds/year, which are sold to the local oyster farming sector as well as to South American and African oyster growers.

It is one of the region’s biggest hatcheries with extensive experience in rearing this species, so it can ensure its clients availability throughout the year and provide full assistance to those farmers who are starting out or who have rearing difficulties.
