US West coast site will produce 33,000-tonnes-per-year of salmon and kingfish.
Last month, the RAS salmon farmer Nordic Aquafarms (NAF) announced an extension of its project on the Samoa Peninsula in Humboldt County, California, which went built will be the first large-scale RAS facility on the US West coast.
NAF has released a video of what the project will look like, when finished.
It expects to receive the necessary permits in 2021, and the first step in the project will be the demolition of old buildings on the site.
The RAS company is also developing another project in the USA, in Maine. This site is in the planning stages, to produce 16,000 metric tonnes of Atlantic salmon per year in its first phase, growing to 33,000 tonnes a year thereafter.
In the beginning of 2019, the company announced that the California site will bring Nordic Aquafarm’s total US output to 50,000 tonnes of salmon per year.
