Click here to download the presentation.

Overview: This webinar will discuss how The Foundry Project will produce fish at Northcoast Fish Farms, LLC, by employing high-tech aqua-culturists using the latest technology to produce a valuable commodity that will provide food for thousands of consumers. Its greenhouses and orchards will utilize the waste streams from the fish farm to provide nutrients for fruits and vegetables at the site. A Data Center will provide waste heat which will be used to provide heat to the aquaculture and greenhouse facilities at the site. Other businesses will provide live-fish brokerage services as well as technological services for a tech incubator. “Balanced” on top of the building will be an arts incubator. The group’s objective is to employ sustainable means and methods to create jobs for people, profits for investors and art for the community.
