Brown Talks to MPBN About Plans for Land-Based Fish Farm on Maine Coast

Nick Brown, director of the University of Maine’s Center for Cooperative Aquaculture Research, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network about plans for a third proposed fish farming operation in the fishing village Corea. Brown has been preparing for test studies on black sea bass and California yellowtail — the types of fish Brunswick-based RAS Corp. wants to raise in the area. Brown said he thinks land-based recirculation can control ocean temperature and optimize growth for the fish that are used to warmer water.
