Nordic Aquafarms INC

The US operation is based on a close to consumer strategy in strong regional consumer markets. Extensive site search has led to competitive facility locations on each US coastline.

 

In Belfast, Maine we are in the final phase of achieving permits. This is a 54-acre multi-stage development project with a complete value chain from incoming eggs to processed fish out the door. The facility will deliver a quality salmon product to the north-east region of the US when in operation. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2020.

 

In Humboldt, California we are currently in the engineering and permitting phase with a total of 50 acres for development. Applications will be submitted in 2020 with expected permit clarifications in 2021. When in operation, the facility will deliver product to the entire West Coast of the US.

 

US operations are organized in the 100 % owned subsidiary Nordic Aquafarms Inc with US headquarters in Portland, Maine. Execution strength is being established step by step on the ground with 10 experienced employees in the US so far, and top-rated construction partners. The US operation is set to expand in line with investments.
