Fish farming is a necessity for sustainable production of salmon, oysters and other shellfish.
The benefits of a land-based farming industry are many..
First, the local region recieves access to fresh quality seafood, oysters, crab, salmon, SHRIMP, halibut and other white fish easily.
Besides the economic benefits to the community, the low environmental impact of a sustainable industry just makes sense.

with aquaculture projects ongoing in three countries, announced plans to create a land-based fish farm on the Samoa peninsula
near Eureka to serve West Coast markets.
From freshly caught seafood to the world class cheeses produced by our dairy farmers, the Northern CA Redwood Coast provides a healthy bounty for it’s citizens
and an unparalled quality of life.
When we purchase locally, the dollars are touched by many in the community.
