The Kingfish Company’s U.S. Facility Fully Permitted by Local, State and Federal Agencies

The Kingfish Company announces the town of Jonesport, Maine has finalized Kingfish Maine’s building permit application, the final step required for pre-construction design and engineering for the Kingfish Company’s new U.S. facility.

In October, the Jonesport Planning Board gave initial approval to Kingfish’s local building permit. The permit conditions were formally approved and adopted in a final meeting this week. Kingfish Maine is now fully permitted by local, state, and federal regulatory agencies.

Kingfish Maine is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kingfish Company and will deploy the same advanced technology and operational excellence proven in the Netherlands. Once the Jonesport facility is fully operational, Kingfish Maine will be the largest producer of Yellowtail Kingfish in the U.S. and will provide local sustainable seafood for North American retailers and food service providers.

"From the introduction of our project to the town three years ago to the final building permit approval this week, we have received overwhelming support from Jonesport residents,” said Ohad Maiman, Founder of the Kingfish Company. “We are excited for what the future holds in Maine - bringing our sustainable land-based technology to the U.S., in a community where we can partner for growth.”
