Jamestown Press: A new aquaculture farm recently won approval from the [Rhode Island] Coastal Resources Management Council, the harbor commissioners learned at their December [2013] meeting.

Adam Silkes plans to build a longline blue mussel farm off Jamestown’s west shore. The farm will encompass 8.25 acres, according to the CRMC.

The coastal council approved the application at its November 26 meeting, and the deadline for filing a Superior Court complaint about the decision is January 3.
