Yellowtail farm greenlit for Jonesport

In this article, you will get detail regarding Yellowtail farm greenlit for Jonesport

Kingfish Maine has won its bid to build an aquaculture farm on Chandler Bay in Jonesport, despite an appeal of a local planning board permit.

The group Protect Downeast argued that Kingfish Maine’s operations do not comply with the city’s land development ordinance and will pollute the bay with 28 million gallons of nitrogen-containing wastewater per day.

“There is concern about that from the city. The DEP will do the testing, and the Planning Board included a mechanism in the permit that requires independent testing by an independent lab,” said Holly Iossa, chairwoman of Jonesport’s Board of Appeals. “There are pros and cons, but I think Jonesport needs something to revitalizing, and I think Kingfish will be good for that.”
