By William Sosinsky
Energime University is announcing an agreement with Egg Harbor City to
develop the 25-acre city owned “Tower Site” as part of an extensive plan to
create a production and education/training aquaculture project in Southern
New Jersey. The agreement is the work of Mayor Lisa Jiampetti and City
Planner Ryan McGowan and the results of 2 years of negotiations and due
diligence.

The plat located 20 minutes northeast of Atlantic City will include a one
hundred thousand square foot indoor fish farm along with a fifty thousand
square foot greenhouse complex. These facilities will create a wide range
of organic produce and fish raised to the highest nutritional standards and
absent of any contaminants or pollutants common to standard farmed
crops.
This project is being built in partnership with elements of Cornell, Rutgers,
Stockton, and Rowan Universities as well as Atlantic Cape Community
College. These schools, along with local k-12 schools will be given access
to the property for internship and program related activities. In addition, the
site will function as an education and training center for the New Jersey
agricultural community and offer certification programs to community
members. The project has gathered the support of AtlanticCare who

operates 83 health and wellness facilities in the area, as well as the local
water and power utilities.
The phase 1 build-out will be limited to a 10-acre section of the property
and will also include and education and community center where Energime
partners will share office space along with site administrators. Energime
expects to break ground early in 2023.
