Pure Salmon $228 million Aquatech Investment in Virginia

Pure Salmon is investing 228-million in a captive growth fish farm that will employ 200 in Tazewell/Russell counties. The controlled environment agriculture venture is aligned with one of the Administration’s core economic development segments. VIAB conceptualized the venture in 2012 and brought Joe Marcy, Virginia Tech’s head of the Department of Food Science and Technology, to Israel to assess prospective technologies for aquacultural projects in Southwest Virginia. The VIAB consequently worked with Virginia Tech Associate Professor David Kuhn in Israel and to bring a senior manager from Aquamaof, the Israeli company whose RAS technology is the backbone of the venture, to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg for a year to work on the project.
