Company Interested in Raising Fish in Former Garbo Lobster Facility

Groton — A company is interested in purchasing the former Garbo Lobster property on Thames Street to use it as a facility to raise fish sustainably.

City Zoning Enforcement Officer Carlton Smith has determined that the use proposed by Deaderick SSB, a Delaware-based limited liability company, appears to be allowed in the Waterfront Business Residence zoning district and to be the same as the property’s existing use, according to a legal notice of his June 21 decision published in The Day on Friday.

“The proposed facility will utilize large tanks within the existing building, within which various fish species will be grown in a sustainable manner,” according to the description of the proposed use. “The growing tanks will receive a constant flow of water directly from the Thames River, which water will circulate through the tanks, and be returned to the River.”
