Lemóniz nuclear power plant site to be turned into shrimp farm
The site of the planned nuclear power plant in Lemoiz, Bizkaia, could be turned into a shrimp farm under plans announced by the Basque Government. The site, which never housed any nuclear fuel, is currently in ruins.
Basque Govt. Minister for Economic Development Arantxa Tapia, accompanied by Rogelio Pozo, Head of the AZTI fisheries laboratory, has presented two projects for fish farms in the Basque Country: one which will start up in Mendexa next year and the second, in the longer term, in Lemóniz.
