AquaCon AS aspires to be a leading producer of land-based farmed Atlantic Salmon with its planned RAS production facilities on Eastern Shore of Maryland in the United States. The company targets a production volume of 48,000 metric tonnes HOG divided between three equally sized and separately nearby located facilities. The strategic location will provide direct access to a market of more than 70 million people, through retailers and HORECA clients, all within four hours trucking distance. The company will employ 500 people with three facilities in operation. AquaCon has secured land which will enable production to more than 100,000 metric tonnes.
Share and Bond
