Florida—Parabel Aqua Farm


On March 9, 2016, Jason Nunemaker, city manager of Fellsmere, Florida, said the recent expansion at Florida Organic Aquaculture’s shrimp-farming operations and the approval of Parabel’s aqua farm will bring jobs to the city.


“This is a huge infusion for the city,” Nunemaker said.  “Parabel will take up about 500 acres.  The shrimp farm is about 100 acres, and they can fill up another couple hundred acres.  So over the course of time, you’re going to see hundreds of jobs come to Fellsmere.”
