Acadia Harvest featured on WMTW

WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) reported on the land-based aquafarm Acadia Harvest. The startup is part of an $8 million collaboration with the University of Maine and is housed at UMaine’s Center for Cooperative Aquaculture Research in Franklin. The company grows yellowtail to market size using land-based aquaculture production, and is providing fresh warm-water fish to Maine restaurants for the first time, according to the report. “Ninety percent of our seafood today is imported. We’d like to change that,” said Ed Robinson, chairman and CEO of Acadia Harvest. “We can provide consumers with high-quality seafood that’s grown closer to home and grown to a standard of quality that they would find attractive to them.” FIS also published an article on Acadia Harvest.
