Purpose-Built Recirculating Aquaculture System
Based on previous aquaculture experience of Eagle’s Catch’s management team, a plan for a unique, purpose-built recirculating system was followed. The project encompasses 10 acres of real estate with a greenhouse structure covering approximately 3.8 acres under roof. Eventually, an office and additional shipping facilities building will be added. The greenhouse contains 48 production tanks and a nursery production system.
The location is ideally situated to take advantage of the main north-south interstate artery in the United States – I-35. Ellsworth is located at the 133 mile marker of I-35 and is intersected by U.S. Highway 175, very near to east-west four-lane US 20, and approximately 50 miles north of the other major US east-west artery – I-80.
