America's Biggest Salmon Farm Under Construction In Miami

America’s Biggest Salmon Farm Under Construction In Miami

A Danish company is about to begin construction on a massive salmon farm in the Redland area.

Atlantic Sapphire USA, a subsidiary of a Norway’s Atlantic Sapphire A/S, just raised half a billion kroner ($76M) to begin work. The project is said to be fully approved.

The salmon farm will be America’s biggest  – by far. It aims to eventually produce 90,000 tonnes of salmon per year – five times all of current U.S. production, and around 20 percent of annual U.S. consumption.

Danish technology will allow the farm to use a fraction of the water normally required by similar farms, and avoid the use of dye and medicines. Underground wells will provide saline water.

The company website lists a headquarters office in Brickell On The River.

this is actually really cool. kind of surprised it is here in many ways, but in other ways it makes sense, Just a random guess that this area is probably one of the few areas in a major metropolitan area that has the transportation infrastructure to ship this stuff anywhere, while also being relatively easy and cost effective to obtain mass quantities of seawater by drill. I would guess. The farther north probably the thicker the bedrock, while here we have that thin slice of limestone.

No comparison with Alaskan or Canadian caught salmon.

My farm is very close and have notice the construction even though it is very cleverly camouflage. Best of luck Redlands on this new endeavor. It sounds very interesting, I only wish they have tours of the facilities once is in operations.
