Comments Off on Fish farm the size of Central Park planned for waters off San Diego Coast

A fish farm with a footprint about the size of Central Park could be coming to Pacific waters just off the coast from San Diego. A project put forward by a partnership between Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute and a private investment firm, the 1.3-square-mile Rose Canyon Fisheries aquaculture facility is planned for a location about four miles offshore from San Diego and projected to produce about 11 million pounds of yellowtail and sea bass per year.
