Placentia Bay Ocean Enterprises is building the cages in partnership with Norwegian company Aqualine, according to NTV.  The 10 Aqualine Midgard System cages were scheduled to be deployed to Mowi’s site in Fortune Bay in April.

Lawn Mayor John Strand is hoping the project will be the jumpstart to long-term job creation for his community in the aquaculture industry.
