Pioneering fish farmer to give presentation on plans for offshore Atlantic striped bass farm

Donna Lanzetta

Donna Lanzetta, Founder of Manna Fish Farms, will give an in-depth presentation on her long held belief that offshore is the place to farm and on her five year venture to gain the necessary permissions

In November 2015, Lanzetta had an important meeting with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, that meeting put her on track to secure the needed permits to ultimately put fish in the water, pending the completion of pre-site studies and other related paperwork.

The U.S. Coast Guard, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and New York’s fisheries management and environmental conservation departments have also all been involved in the process. Lanzetta feels all associated are hopeful for the integrated multitrophic farm’s success (Manna plans to grow scallops, kelp and mussels as well). But to satisfy the concerns of all agencies and other interests, the operating site for Manna had to be moved from three miles offshore to six — and then again to 16.2 miles from the coastline of Hampton Bays, New York, USA.
