Thomas Brennan, project manager for American Aquafarms, will discuss their proposed Salmon Aquafarm in Frenchman Bay. He will focus on why it is important and its impact on our community, and our environment. 

In light of the state's recent decision to terminate American Aquafarms' application for a fish farm in Frenchman Bay, this will be an opportunity to learn more about the proposal and ask questions about future plans.

A counterpoint presentation with folks from Frenchman Bay United, Friends of Acadia, and Acadia National Park is scheduled for the following week on Tuesday, May 17th.

Thomas Brennan is the project manager for American Aquafarms. Brennan’s professional career spans some 35 years largely focused on water and natural resource development and management. In addition to a degree in geology from Bates College, he holds Geologic Certifications in the State of Maine, Republic of Ireland and the European Union.  He worked in environmental consulting for a dozen years gaining exposure to many aspects of environmental science and regulatory structures.  Over nearly the past 20 years, he led the Natural Resource Management for Nestle Waters North America, chiefly for the Poland Spring Brand from Maine, also in the Mid-Atlantic and Eastern Canada.  

This event is free and open to everyone.
