Catalina Sea Ranch is the first aquaculture facility in U.S. federal waters. Located six miles off the coast of Huntington Beach on 100 acres, Catalina Sea Ranch will be commercially growing primarily mussels. Catalina Sea Ranch’s goal is to expand its 100-acre ranch to over 1,000 acres with science based data showing no negative environmental or social impact. Launching operations with low-risk, high profitable mussels – not susceptible to disease, no predators when suspended on ropes in the open-ocean and harvested 6 through 10 months after seeding. Catalina Sea Ranch intends to expand by cultivating other sustainable filter-feeding shellfish crops such as oysters, rock scallops and macro algae as well.
