Please join the MOV and Belpre Chambers as we celebrate the Grand Opening of Vienna Indoor Aquaculture!
Vienna Indoor Aquaculture (VIA) is a local startup business located behind Cheddar’s at 100 12th St. in Vienna, and is a subsidiary under the ACE Educational Foundation (ACE P3, LLC) which aims to bring indoor aquaculture to the Mid-Ohio Valley. In early 2019, VIA purchased an unused City of Vienna vehicle maintenance facility and renovated it for the installation of ultraviolet “grow lights,” four 50-ft rows of ECSIA® troughs and grow trays, and four large fish tanks. ECSIA®’s patented aquaculture technology is designed to produce high nutrition, flavorful produce, with a significantly longer shelf-life than standard produce. On average, product is turned every four weeks, 365 days a year (even out of season). Fish waste is mineralized to nourish produce such as herbs, leafy greens, tomatoes, and strawberries, and product will be sold to local businesses and eating establishments. Customers can advertise VIA products as “locally-grown, organic.” A portion of our electrical power needs are augmented by solar panels supplied by Pickering Energy. Our employees bring nearly 100 years of construction, business, leadership, and project management experience to the table to aid in the promotion and success of VIA. Eventually, we hope to expand our business to include more greenhouses, and work with health providers to make fresh, healthy food available for patients.
