I’ve been writing about UNH aquaculture since 1999, including efforts to develop ways to raise large numbers of fish in huge floating tanks (really nets suspended from big floating rings) in the ocean. It’s cool to see that this operation is paying dividends in the form of steelhead trout grown as part of “multi-trophic aquaculture,” which means several different species raised in the same location (sugar kelp and blue mussels as well as the trout, in a cage at the mouth of the Piscataqua River.)

UNH has a good video story about it right here which says that steelhead trout, branded as local as well as tasty, is already a hit with chefs.

Rather than the deep-ocean platform near the Isle of Shoals that I visited years ago, these are grown closer to shore in a platform developed with a local company.
