America’s Biggest Salmon Farm Under Construction…… In Miami

Miami is probably the last place you would think of when it comes to fish aquaculture.

Atlantic Sapphire has begun construction on a massive salmon farm in the Miami area.

The salmon farm will be America’s biggest  – by far. It aims to eventually produce 90,000 tonnes of salmon per year – five times all of current U.S. production, and around 20 percent of annual U.S. consumption.

Danish technology will allow the farm to use a fraction of the water normally required by similar farms and avoid the use of dye and medicines. Underground wells will provide saline water.t

The plan is for the first eggs to go in around mid-2018.
