Notes directly from the Project: General parameters for our search are the following:
1. Proximity and access to seawater
2. Site allowing for an approx. 40 acre construction of industrial/aquaculture buildings (given zoning and construction limitations the site should probably be larger but should allow for a 40 acre building footprint)
3. Access to robust energy grid
4. Supportive local and state regulation for the permitting of a large scale aquaculture operation utilizing seawater
We operate on the cutting edge of sustainable best practices- meaning we filter the seawater coming into our fish tanks, but as importantly clean the outgoing water prior to discharge.
We have to date advanced in permitting our site in New England, working closely with DEP, DMR and Army Core and have confirmed our activity meets state and federal environmental protection requirements.
