While still small in size compared to major global players, the U.S. aquaculture sector is experiencing growth at all levels, from mom-and-pop sized aquafarms to massive projects such as Atlantic Sapphire’s development in Florida and Nordic Aquafarms efforts in Maine. While still a young industry domestically, the field of viable players is growing and the impact to the marketplace is certain. This panel will concentrate on the rapidly expanding number of recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) projects completed or under development in the United States, with a special focus on hearing from the producers themselves. Joe Cardenas, founder and CEO of Aquaco Farms, Nordic Aquafarms President and Co-Founder Erik Heim, Kingfish Zeeland CEO and Co-Founder Ohad Maiman, and American Fresh Fillets President J. Michael Mogollon will discuss the challenges and advantages of RAS in the U.S., from permitting to construction, and from farming to marketing and sales.
