Floating protest takes aim at proposed salmon farm near Acadia NP

On Sunday, 125 boats were part of a protest on the water over a salmon farm proposed in a bay near Maine's Acadia National Park.

The proposal, currently in a state-level permitting process with both the Maine Department of Marine Resources and Maine Department of Environmental Protection, would allow American Aquafarms, a Norwegian-backed company, to place large commercial salmon-raising operation in Frenchman Bay, which borders the park and nearby towns like Bar Harbor.
