   Ducktrap River Expansion Will Tap Growing Smoked Salmon Market
by James McCarthy, MaineBiz

Ducktrap River of Maine has completed its $5 milion expansion in a vacant warehouse across from its smoked seafood facility in the Belfast Business Park.

The expansion increases the Belfast facility's production capacity by 75% and will enable the company to capture an even greater share of the growing smoked salmon market in the United States, Ducktrap River of Maine Director Don Cynewski told Mainebiz in a telephone interview Tuesday morning.

Cynewski said senior management from Ducktrap's parent company, Marine Harvest ASA, attended Friday's ribbon-cutting ceremony for what he described as a "state-of-the-art" facility. Marine Harvest, with headquarters in Norway, is one of the largest seafood companies in the world and the world's largest producer of Atlantic salmon. It has owned Ducktrap River since 2007 and earlier had made a $4.5 million investment in 2013, a 21,000-square-foot expansion that doubled the Belfast facility's production and processing capacity and replaced its refrigeration/heating system with a unit that's more energy efficient.
