The Kingfish Company unveiled that 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 US facility.

After the initial approval that the town gave to Kingfish Company in October, the permit for the construction of Kingfish Company’s new facility has been formally approved and adopted this week in a final meeting.

Once the Jonesport facility is fully operational, Kingfish Maine will be the largest producer of yellowtail kingfish in the US 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 US, in a community where we can partner for growth.”
