TODAY’S SPEAKER:  Scott Thompson, Nordic Aqua Farms

Recently released environmental draft report now going thru public comment.  The plan is to build a recirculating aquaculture system.  This system prevents escape, waste, removes parasites, bacteria and viruses, it’s efficient since it recycles the water.

Fish take 2 years to grow prior to being harvested.  So once the plant is built and up and running there will be a delay prior to actually harvesting the fish. There will be about 150 jobs.

The meeting was adjourned at 12:53pm.
