SIESTA KEY, Florida – The Siesta Key Association is holding a virtual hearing against an offshore fish farm on Wednesday.
The first session will take place at 10:30 a.m. and the second at 6:30 p.m.
“Despite overwhelming public opposition to the Villela Epsilon offshore fish farm at the EPA hearing in Sarasota, the Army Corps of Engineers will issue a permit without holding a hearing,” the event description read. “The farm, the first in a planned Gulf aquaculture area, poses a major threat to Sarasota’s marine life, ecosystem, tourism and economy.”
