Manna Fish Farms is pioneering to be one of the first U.S. permitted open ocean finfish farms in federal waters off New York and Florida. Utilizing the latest in submersible net pen technology, Manna Fish Farms, will build and operate a sustainable commercial fish farm growing finfish and researching IMTA (Integrated Multi Trophic Aquaculture) with macroalgae (kelp) and shellfish (sea scallops, mussels, oysters). The waterfront restaurant’s iconic location will continue to serve as a visual landmark for travelers as they reach the eastern end of Sunrise Highway (RT 27). The property was initially acquired in 2018 in a collaborative purchase with the Town of Southampton, wherein the Town purchased the marina, the restaurant group purchased the restaurant, and the fish farm purchased the land across from the restaurant for fish farming, selling back the development rights on that farmland to the Town. Additionally, approximately two acres were purchased and preserved outright by the Town of Southampton. This purchase was accomplished as an alternative to a 26-unit townhouse development slated for the property.
