Nordic Aquafarms Planning A 2nd Facility In California

The company planning to build one of the world’s largest land-based salmon farms in Belfast intends to open a similar facility in California.

Nordic Aquafarms Inc., a Norwegian-based salmon company, announced Saturday that a subsidiary of the company, California Marine Investments, is entering into a land purchase agreement in Humboldt County, California, where it plans to build a land-based fish farm to raise either salmon or trout.

Last winter, Nordic Aquafarms announced its plan to build a large salmon farm close to the Little River in Belfast, near the Northport town line. The project is slated to cost between $150 million to $500 million. When finished, it is projected that the facility will produce up to 60 million pounds of salmon per year.
