BELFAST, Maine (WABI) - A second public meeting was held in Belfast to discuss a possible land-based salmon farm.

Representatives from Nordic Aquafarms were on hand to show potential designs for the site.
They also took questions and concerns from the public.
Before the event, a group of citizens lined up outside to protest the potential site.

“We're certainly looking for clarity because I think that there are a lot of things that we've been given a lot of general answered to questions we've been asking and in someways been patted on the pack and told 'trust us,'” said Ridgely Fuller of Local Citizens for Smart Growth

Belfast Economic Development Director, Thomas Kittredge, said, “we've made a concerted, good faith effort, both Nordic Aquafarms and the city of Belfast to put reliable information about this project out there so people could understand it and I think for a lot of people it's only going to be positive benefit.”
