Chilean Fisheries Group and its affiliate company face involuntary bankruptcy petition from commercial lenders.

In a legal filing, the commercial lender Affinity Capital Funding filed a claim Sept. 10 in a US Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of Florida against Aventura-based Chilean Fisheries Group for USD 3.2 million.

Affinity Capital Funding also filed an involuntary bankruptcy petition against Chilean Fisheries Group’s affiliate company, Pacifico Sur Group for the same amount.

The US legal proceeding means that the business has been requested to go into bankruptcy by its creditors, rather than on its own accord.

According to Panjiva, Chilean Fisheries Group regulary imported 15 tonnes of Chilean salmon into the port of Port Everglades, Florida.

Pacifico Sur Group has a one-page website which has the tagline “its mission is to deliver first-class products to our customers in the main markets”. However, there is no other information nor contact on it.
