Norwegian land-based farmer Salmon Evolution has approached the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe about a new land-based site as part of its plans to expand into North America in the next few years.

Ron Allen, CEO and chairman of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, confirmed with IntraFish Tuesday the company has approached him about the project as part of an "exploratory consideration."

Allen said he is interested in working with Salmon Evolution because they already have a project in Norway that he described as "quite successful."
