Voters in Jonesport, Maine, will vote July 20 on whether to institute a six-month moratorium on aquaculture projects at a time when The Kingfish Company subsidiary Kingfish Maine is on the verge of getting final approvals for its land-based farm.

Local officials voted Wednesday night to hold a special town meeting just weeks after Kingfish Maine received all state and federal permits to build a land-based facility to grow yellowtail kingfish on 93 acres in the town. The company still needs one more approval before breaking ground — a building permit from the Jonesport Planning Board.
