Bringing salmon production to the U.S. heartland

Salmon Production in Iowa

Iowa is an advantageous location for salmon production for a variety of reasons. The major input for salmon, like any animal protein, is feed and clean water. Iowa is one of the lowest cost feed ingredient locations in the world. Another major input for recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is electricity, and Iowa has some of the most competitive rates in the US. The factors that motivated Google, Facebook, and Microsoft to locate server farms in Iowa are the same factors motivating placement of large-scale RAS aquaculture in Iowa. Finally, much of the farmed salmon you eat in the Midwest travels approximately 3,500 miles from Norway or 5,500 miles from Chile. We believe that salmon production in Iowa will have an out-of-the gate transportation cost advantage of approximately $0.50 to $1.00, aside from a freshness and quality advantage. Iowa is the number one U.S. producer of corn, soybeans, pork, ethanol, eggs… and soon, we anticipate salmon!

Our FUTURE Facility

Harlan, Iowa

Entrepreneurs, engineers, and marine biologist have been at work for the last decade developing systems and technologies to enable large-scale indoor fish production, with multiple RAS salmon production facilities are currently operational in Europe. Inland Sea’s facility will leverage this work and has agreements with equipment companies, technology providers, and experts to bring these next-generation state-of-the-art systems to the United States. As presently contemplated, our facility will be large-scale with a two-acre footprint and be bio-secure and efficient which we expect will be capable of weekly harvests of approximately 100,000 pounds of salmon, 5.3 million pounds annually.
