Maine’s aquaculture industry raises finfish, shellfish, and seaweed in farms along the coast. The most significant commercial species are Atlantic salmon, blue mussels, oysters, and seaweed. Aquaculture farms must obtain a lease from the state because they operate in public waters. In this updated version of our publication Marine Aquaculture in Maine, learn how leases are granted, where farms are sited, what to look for in a responsible aquaculture operation, and more.
