Residents concerned about salmon farm expansion near Liverpool


Some residents in the Liverpool area are worried about a possible expansion of Cooke Aquaculture’s salmon farm in Liverpool Bay on the South Shore.

The provincial Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture has granted Kelly Cove Salmon, which is owned by Cooke, an option to apply for new fish farm sites in the bay just outside Liverpool, N.S.

Cooke has owned and operated a fish farm there since 2011. The company has not yet applied for a new site, but is currently collecting information about the area and holding meetings with the community.

The company will host a public meeting on Tuesday at the Queens Place Emera Centre in Liverpool at 4 p.m. It made a presentation to the Region of Queens council last Tuesday.
