Pure Salmon is one of the fastest growing Atlantic salmon companies globally. We are on course to build and operate multiple 10,000 tons p.a. and 20,000 tons p.a. vertically integrated aquaculture production and processing facilities using land-based Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology. We are targeting 260,000 tons of annual Atlantic salmon production by 2025, with 140,000 tons p.a. already mapped out.
In Virginia, Pure Salmon will construct an aquaculture facility on the boundary of Tazewell and Russell counties that is expected to employ more than 200 people.
The company will invest about $228 million in the equipment and facility, which will be the world’s largest vertically integrated indoor aquaculture facility.
Land has been purchased this summer and Pure Salmon has applied for a land-disturbing permit this fall. Site preparation will begin in earnest this winter, and the project is expected to be complete by the end of 2023
