Friday, August 21, 2020. The Port Authority of the Bay of Cadiz has started the processing, with the publication in the BOE, of the application of the company Acuicultura Cádiz EME-450.1, S.L. for the administrative concession for the occupation of land on the left bank of the River Guadalente, in El Puerto de Santa María, for the construction of a multi-fattening module of seriola (lemon fish).

The plot, located in the aquaculture cluster of the port’s dock, has an area of 10,000 square meters and the term for which the concession is requested is 30 years.

The project provides for an annual production of 450 tons, based on the use of seawater recirculation technology (RAS), a clean and non-polluting procedure that guarantees the industrial production of this species.

The fattening module will have a built area of 4,541 square meters on the ground floor and almost 2,000 on the mezzanine floor. The facilities will have fattening tanks, offices, water treatment areas, work and classification areas, a control and surveillance area, a warehouse, a cold chamber, a laboratory, a workshop, warehouses, changing rooms, a waste storage area, a reserve tank and a decanter.

The total investment amounts to 2.3 million euros.

As is known, on the left bank of the Guadalete River, in a public port area, there is an important cluster of aquaculture exploitation industries that are pioneers in the sector and have made a strong commitment to innovation, technology, research and development. International and also local companies have set their sights on this space, due to its special characteristics (of the river water), for aquaculture breeding and production.
