BUCKSPORT (AP) – A proposed indoor salmon farm in Bucksport is one step closer to reality.
Whole Oceans received its final required permit to move forward with building the $180 million facility.
The fish farm will be built at the site of the former Verso mill.
Next, town officials will meet with the company to review construction plans.
Whole Oceans plans to begin construction in April of 2020, with the goal of having the facility online in 2022.
Up to 75 people are predicted to be hired in the first phase.
