Camden — Erik Heim, CEO of Nordic Aquafarms, will present information and answer questions about the company's proposal to build an aquaculture facility in Belfast, at the Camden Yacht Club Aug. 15, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Nordic Aquafarms' proposed land-based salmon farm in Belfast would be one of the world’s largest inland salmon aquaculture facilities, according to the company. Aiming for a 2019 start date, they predict producing more than 60 million pounds of salmon a year and potentially creating 140 jobs in the $400,000,000 facility.

The company says the Gulf of Maine was chosen due to its pristine environment, cold water conditions, its long history as a leader in the seafood industry and its proximity to consumer markets on the Northeast.

This presentation is the seventh in a series of eight hosted by the Camden Yacht Club and is free of charge and open to the public. Donations at the door will be accepted, to benefit the non-profit Camden Area Youth Seamanship Program.

The Camden Yacht Club is located at 68 Bay View Street. For more information, contact the CYC office at 236-7033 or visit: camdenyachtclub.org.
