The Weekly Podcast – Aquaculture Part One – American Aquafarms



For this week’s episode, we will talk about the state’s aquaculture industry, with a specific focus on a proposed salmon farm by American Aquafarms, a Norwegian-backed company, based in Portland, that is looking to raise Atlantic salmon in ocean pens at two, 60-acre sites in Frenchman Bay. This is the first of a two-part series on aquaculture. Today, we’ll discuss the industry as a whole, what proponents have to say in support of the American Aquafarms project as well as the concerns from its vocal opposition. Next week, Tyler Southard will explore the Nordic Aquafarms project in Belfast.
