Large Maine Salmon Farm to Prioritize Sustainability

BELFAST, Maine – The architects of a large salmon farm planned for coastal Maine say they will seek a sustainability certification once the facility is up and running.

Nordic Aquafarms plans to build an inland salmon farm capable of producing more than 60 million pounds of fish per year in Belfast. It has called the project one of the largest of its kind.

The firm says it will seek certification from the Aquaculture Stewardship Council as a sustainable seafood producer. Nordic’s sister company, Sashimi Royal of Denmark, recently received the same certification.
