From the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group:
Aquafarming for Humboldt Bay?
Eureka, CA–“Aquafarming for Humboldt Bay” will be the topic at the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group monthly luncheon on Wednesday, July 31.
In February, Nordic Aquafarms Inc., through its subsidiary California Marine Investments, announced plans to build a land-based fish farm in Humboldt County to serve West Coast markets. Lynette Mullen, Nordic Aquafarm’s local Community Liaison, will be presenting an overview of the project planned for the Samoa Peninsula.
Nordic Aquafarms is one of the premier investors and developers in land-based aquaculture internationally, with production facilities in Norway and Denmark, and two projects under development in Maine and Humboldt County. The company is a trailblazer in the land-based fish farming industry and is supported by strong and well-established financial investors. Nordic is developing sustainable fish farming practices to deliver super fresh high-quality seafood to regional markets. The founders are committed to a low environmental impact and sustainability in every facet of the business, from setting new standards for discharge, to energy efficiency and solar power, to refusing to use GMO fish and feed. More information about the proposed project can be found at www.nordichumboldt.com.
The Harbor Working Group’s luncheons are held on the last Wednesday of each month. Their programs focus on the development of the Port of Humboldt Bay as an international seaport. Last year, the presentations were directed to envisioning the Harbor as an international seaport. This year, the programs are dedicated to learning what can be done—and what is being done—to make it happen.
The luncheon is a “no host” event. Lunch starts being served at noon; and the presentation starts around 12:30.
Roast Beef will be served for lunch at $16 and soup and salad is available for $12. Please RSVP at 707-441-1974 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
