The Seafood Grimsby & Humber Alliance Group, which represents major processors in Grimsby including Young's Seafood, Hilton Food Group and New England Seafood, is throwing its support behind a $90 million, 5,000 metric ton land-based salmon farm being planned for the UK seafood hub.

AquaCultured Seafood -- established by industry veterans, including ex-M&J and Global Aquaculture Alliance executive Mike Berthet and former Scottish Salmon Company CEO Craig Anderson -- revealed plans in February for the land-based farm to be built in the center of the UK's seafood processing industry.
