Beals okays salmon aquaculture moratorium; Jonesport’s on hold

by Nancy Beal

By a vote of 23-0 on May 2, Beals voters opted to put a six-month hold on new or renewed aquaculture projects designed to grow salmon in their waters. In Jonesport two days later, selectmen rejected a petition for a similar pause on all commercial aquaculture activity, citing legal advice that the petition, signed by 74 townspeople, was not accompanied by the required sworn statements from its circulators.
