Former President & COO Jason Mitchell leaves RAS project in Maine, USA.

Jason Mitchell, who had multiple director roles such as COO and President at the planned land-based salmon project, is now calling himself a “free agent” on his LinkedIn profile.

The company has had three different bosses since 2018. Last October, Whole Oceans founder and CEO Rob Piasio stepped down from the role to be replaced by shipbuilding veteran and company president Jacob Bartlett.

Then, Whole Oceans’ parent company boss Emergent Holdings Jacob Bartlett took over as CEO in early August.

Mitchell had stepped back from his role as COO but was initially to have retained the title of President.

Emergent Holdings hired Justin Hankins as Vice President of Finance earlier in the year to take over Mitchell’s responsibilities.

Whole Oceans said that it has already has pre-sold 100% of its total production for the next 10 years. It is currently preparing to secure final permits and begin construction of the 50,000 tonnes a year at the former Verso Paper mill site, Bucksport, Maine.
