Miami Salmon Farm Will Be Ready For First Eggs By Year End

The massive salmon farm under construction is nearly ready for the introduction of eggs, according to the company building.

Atlantic Sapphire released a report to investors earlier this month stating that egg introduction is on track to begin in Q4 2018. Steady state production is on track for the third quarter of 2020.

Following the release of the report (which also included on update on the company’s operation in Denmark), Atlantic Sapphire’s share price rose from around 46 Norwegian kroner on September 10 to around 60 kroner in Oslo yesterday.

The company has said that conditions in Miami are unique, with the potential to supply all of the U.S. demand for salmon with just 500 acres of land.

Drilling to three different depths in the ground is part of the project. 50-foot wells will supply freshwater, a 2,000-foot well will supply artesian saline water that has been stored underground in Florida for thousands of years, while a 3,000-foot well will be used to inject treated wastewater, which the company says is non toxic and won’t migrate up or down thanks to a hard shell barrier.

The area where the farm is being built is the only one in the U.S. with the geology to sustainably discharge salt water in quantities required to scale, according to a company presentation. It is also the only area with high quality salt and fresh groundwater supply in sufficiently large quantities.

Full of fish? Right now it’s over-fished so it’s without the fish.

Say fish again….FISH

Plus, most oceanic plastic pollution comes from the fishing industry. No matter how many bans on plastic bags and straws are put in place, there is still a much greater need to reform fishing practices.

Also, all the Third World countries that pollute like crazy, but plastic straws are the problem? I’m always picking up bottles that say “Brasserie Nationale d’Haïti” along the beach.

Not true! China and the rest of Asia generates much more trash. If you think the USA is so bad, why are you here?

Ever heard of China and India? The former has a river permanently dyed blue so you people can have your skinny jeans. In the latter, the idea of recycling is pooping in the street so cows can have free lunch. So don’t give me any of that “‘we’re’ not doing our part crap.”

I agree, Salmon Farming is rather Toxic, so are the Salmon. Farmed Salmon grow just like caged cows due, disease prone and artificially turned pink through feed.
