The Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners will consider awarding the incentives at its Feb. 19 meeting.  

The company in question, identified as “Project Atlantic Sapphire,” aims to make a $340 million capital investment to build a 1.1 million-square-foot manufacturing and fish processing plant, retain 54 workers and create 237 new jobs over a three-year period, according to the commission’s Feb. 19 agenda. The new jobs would pay an average annual salary of $60,000.
