Commerce, Recreation, and ConservationHumboldt County's tidelands, bays, and estuaries have unique and diverse management needs. The Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District was created in 1973 to address these needs. The District oversees planned development of the harbors and ports within its boundaries, as well as protection of the natural resources located here. It is a countywide agency with permit jurisdiction over all tide, submerged and other lands granted to the District, including all of Humboldt Bay. For more info please visit our District overview page.
New Aquaculture Lease at Redwood Marine Terminal IIClick here for related documents. The Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District is excited to announce a new lease with California Marine Investments, LLC (a subsidiary of Nordic Aquafarms) for 30-acres of the Redwood Marine Terminal II facility on the Samoa Peninsula for a potential land-based aquaculture project. The Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the lease at a Special Meeting held on February 11, 2019, however it was made clear during the meeting that the lease is merely the first stage in the process for the potential project. There will be an extensive period of community engagement and regulatory review before the project is ultimately given the green light. Additional Information will be released as it becomes available. Lynette Mullen is Community Outreach Contact for Nordic Aquafarms and can be reached at (707) 845-0467.
