Inland Sea proposes salmon production facility in Harlan
HARLAN – An Ames, IA-based firm has plans to develop a salmon production facility in Harlan, bringing 10-15 jobs to the community and producing upwards of 5.3 million pounds of fish annually at its two-acre production plant to be located in the industrial park south of town.
Shelby County Chamber of Commerce and Industry Executive Director Todd Valline confirmed this week that Inland Sea hopes to be up and running by spring of 2017.
“They are looking at Harlan as a place to build their new facility,” said Valline, producing sushi-grade Atlantic salmon at the plant. Inland Sea will be building a state-of-the-art recirculating aquaculture system facility for salmon production, the first one in Iowa located in Harlan.
The company’s website says it has access to the full site of technologies, systems, and know-how needed to construct and operate one of the most technologically advances, highly automated recirculating grow-out systems in the world.
