It’s been awhile since we last spoke about the world of Basque fishing. However, the Japanese website FIS.com, which specializes in the sector, does pay it quite a lot of attention.
And we’re mentioning them today because they’ve published a detailed article about the Basque Government “promot[ing] the marine polygon of aquaculture production Mendexa and the production and aquaculture research hub Balura” at the unfinished nuclear power plant in Lemoiz.
The projects are calculated to be able to generate €40 million annually, and can encourage job growth of between 380 and 575 posts, according to the level of development of the projects.
They’re being promoted by the the Department of Economic Development and Infrastructure of the Basque Government and the AZTI technology center at Tecnalia.

Basque Govt promotes two important aquaculture projects
The Department of Economic Development and Infrastructure of the Basque Government promotes the marine polygon of aquaculture production Mendexa and the production and aquaculture research hub Balura in Lemoiz. These initiatives are carried out within the framework of the Strategic Aquaculture Plan 2014-2020, which includes the creation of terrestrial and maritime infrastructures to facilitate the implementation of industrial projects, and the RIS3 smart specialization strategy, which highlights aquaculture as one of the areas to be developed in the field of new sustainable food production systems.
