Nekton Aquatics Public

Nekton Aquatics is a prospective company emphasizing environmental reconstruction and the need for stable food sources in the world. We believe that the repopulation of North Atlantic Cod in Georges Bank is a major step toward reversing the damaging effects of overfishing. Our main objective is to provide clientele with a sustainable cod source, focusing on the Portland region. Nekton Aquatics plans to have its first aquafarm located conveniently off Interstate 95 in Saco, Maine. Our new facility will hold 1500 tanks over 15 acres which will hold and produce 1500 tons of cod annually. Over the years, we hope that our cod production will alleviate the stress on the cod population located in George’s Bank, and encourage the fishing industry to change its views on land-based fish farms.
