To the Editor:

Aquaculture is an important component of Maine’s working waterfront and new leases are something we rarely oppose – only once in the last few decades.

However, after much deliberation and consultation with our members, conservation allies and the broader community, Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Board of Directors has voted to oppose the American Aquafarms salmon farm proposal slated for Frenchman Bay in the heart of the state’s Acadia region.
