While the midwest is well-know for agriculture, aquaculture is quickly gaining ground, aquaculture is quickly gaining ground.
On Thursday, a group was in Sioux City trying to gain investors for a salmon farm in western Iowa.
Representatives of Inland Sea talked about the proposed facility in Harlan.
It's a process known in Europe, but new to America.
Backers think Iowa is an ideal place for the farm.
"Because we produce feed ingredients very cost-effectively and so fish feed; feed is a product of force in Iowa," said Kevin Kimle, Inland Sea CEO. "Transportation to a big part of the country is relatively easy. Our interstates and highways are good so we can transport fresh salmon from one place to the next for a very good price."
If they can get enough support, the farm could produce around 5.3 million pounds of salmon, every year.
