Nordic Aquafarms Representatives want to get the word out on what their large fish farm project means for the North Coast.
A community meeting was held tonight about their plan to construct a fully contained, state of the art recirculating aquaculture systems facility at the redwood marine terminal in the Samoa Peninsula
The new facility is estimated to represent a potential 4-hundred million dollar investment and produce as much as 27-thousand metric tons of fish annually. This project is a 100 percent land-based operation–located indoors with 99 percent re-circulation levels and fully traceable seafood-from egg to harvest on one location.
It is a 4-million dollar multi-stage development project supplying between 80 to 100 direct jobs to the county, as well as many secondary jobs and economic benefits.
Quality seafood has documented health benefits if responsibly sourced and sustainable seafood is extremely resource efficient.
The project will use sustainable feed ingredients which means no growth hormones, no GMO’s or antibiotics are added to the fish.
Permit applications are expected to be submitted in the summer of 2020
