Press release from Nordic Aquafarms:

Yesterday, the North Coast Regional Water Quality Board voted 4-0 to adopt the NPDES order awarding the permit for wastewater discharge for co-permittees Nordic Aquafarms California and the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation, and Conservation District.

Nordic is dedicated to fulfilling the conditions of the order which includes extensive water monitoring. With one more permit obtained, Nordic is pleased to continue on the path forward in the permitting process.

“We are hoping to be in front of the Coastal Commission this November and continue the positive momentum. This summer Nordic’s application had also been approved by the CDFW to raise Yellowtail Kingfish and with each successful step, we look forward to beginning construction and becoming operational,” states Brenda Chandler, CEO.
