dc.description Nordic Aquafarms, a leading international developer of land-based aquaculture, will be presenting an overview of their planned Humboldt County facility on Thursday, April 11, at 2 p.m. at HSU Kate Buchanan Room. The company has developed significant innovations in Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology, which uses large, independent tanks and water treatment systems. The Humboldt facility is anticipated to meet the growing US demand for fresh seafood (90% of which is currently imported) in a sustainable, environmentally responsible manner. en_US
dc.description.abstract Nordic Aquafarms is a leading developer of land-based aquaculture internationally, with production facilities in Norway and Denmark, and two proposed projects in the US (Belfast Maine, and Humboldt County, California). The company has a strong in-house engineering capability that has enabled significant innovation in RAS development and some of the most experienced RAS production staff in the industry. The US imports 90% of the fresh seafood consumed and demand continues to grow. To meet current demand, most of the fresh fish consumed in the US is air-freighted at a significant cost and with considerable CO2 footprint. To achieve growth in domestic supply of fresh local fish in a sustainable, environmentally responsible manner, land-based fish farming is a solution. en_US
