JONESPORT (AP) — A Dutch-owned firm planning to build a $110 million land-based fish farm in Jonesport has acquired property and received final permits from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
The approval of the final DEP permits and the purchase of a 94-acre oceanfront parcel allows Kingfish Maine to proceed with design and engineering.
The planned Jonesport fish farm is one of four large-scale fish farms proposed along Maine’s eastern coast.
It is the only one that would produce yellowtail.
The others plan to produce salmon.
