Details of the project were announced at Tuesday’s meeting of the Michigan Strategic Fund Board, which gave initial approval to assisting with the issuance of $100 million in bonds for the project. 

Atlantis intends to use a French recirculating aquaculture system not applied before in the United States, according to a memo to the board.

The fish are hatched on site and then grown in two large water tanks that are controlled for light, current, feed and temperature, according to the memo. The operation would involve two buildings totaling 100,000 square feet.

“What we are doing is bringing a transformational industry into West Michigan,” Krider told the board on Tuesday.[continues...]

IN BRIEF - The tuna season starts with a new record: 370 euros per kilo

Tuesday, May 23, 2023

The Cantabrian tuna coast has begun. And it did so this morning, at 06:30, with the start of the auction at a record price, 370 euros per kilo for the first tub of specimens caught with a hook (troll) in waters close to the Azores Islands. The first tub, weighing one hundred kilos, has been fished by the Gaztelugatxe Doniene, whose skipper and owner is Iñigo Oronoz.

From the left, Iñigo Oronoz, Armando Prendes, Pablo González, José Manuel Lema and Cristina Luaces, with the first catches after the auction

As is almost tradition, the buyer of the so-called “campanu del mar”, which is how the first tuna along the coast is known, has been the Alimerka supermarket chain. Armando Prendes, head of the Alimerka fishmongers, stressed that his company "continues the tradition of supporting the primary sector and (this year, like last) at a record price." As usual, the chain will donate the first tub to charities in Oviedo, Gijón and Mieres and will sell the rest of the fish in its stores throughout the region: "Tomorrow it will be in all stores at a price yet to be defined We hope to have bonito this week and that all stores have it on their counters”.
