Aquaculture Lease Inventory
There are aquaculture sites located from Kittery to Eastport. Aquaculturalists in Maine are small part-time growers, full-time farmers working for themselves, as well as large companies with many employees, lease sites, and processing facilities.
As of January 28, 2013 there are 80 molluscan shellfish leases (including experimental leases), totaling 642 acres, 1 experimental seaweed lease (0.86 acres), 2 green sea urchin leases (4 acres total) and 28 finfish leases (678.57 acres total) located in marine and estuarine waters along the Maine coast. This summary does not include the more than 90 Limited Purpose Aquaculture Licenses (LPAs) that are issued annually and for a maximum area of 400 square feet.
The inventory below will show you where farms are located, as well as provide contact, harvest, and lease information.
