Not a lot of Japanese around as tourist. A few, but not overwhelming.
We do have some Japanese clients that live in the country, but they are here for other reasons.
As for paying for conservation, I would put gutting the office of SERNAPESCA with a very dull fillet knife on one of my top improvements to Chile's future. Let's see, 0 enforcement of the sport fishing industry license requirement, catch limits, and so on. if it is done at all it is done by volunteers, some of which have been seriously injured in the process. They caused the near complete colapse of the salmon industry, because they failed to regulate and oversee the use of antibiotics and numbers of fish. They have done nothing to help preserve or improve the sport fishing. They did nothing to stop the ditimo outbreak, and as far as I know are not even involved in the quarentine. They have done nothing to help improve seafood safty in the country, even though it is a major industry.
In fact, I am not even sure what the hell they do. They collect money for licenses, and half the time they fail to provide sufficient numbers of those to the areas that are biggest sport fishing zones.
Yea, not a fan.
