Jordan Simonson, Jackson County Chronicle, 31 August 2017 – The largest Atlantic salmon farm in the country, Superior Fresh, opened its doors to Gov. Scott Walker Thursday in the small town of Northfield in Jackson County, providing a look into the future of harvesting fish and producing vegetables.

With the vision Superior Fresh has shown in the project, Steven Summerfelt, Ph.D., the director of aquaculture systems research for the Freshwater Institute, said it is the wave of the future.

“Superior Fresh is showing us what the future of seafood and agriculture is looking like at a commercial scale. Just the tour today, if a picture is a 1,000 words, this was a novel, and this novel isn’t science fiction. This is the future of environmentally-controlled agriculture,” Summerfelt said.
