BUCKSPORT — Demolition is continuing at a former paper mill site that will one day become home to a salmon farm and Maine Maritime center.

Town Manager Susan Lessard said landowner American Iron and Metal, a scrap metal recycler, is completing demolition while a company seeks permits for a $250 million salmon farm.

The Bangor Daily News reports that the demolition is expected to cost $4.45 million and generate about 14,000 cubic yards of demolition debris.

American Iron and Metal Development acquired the property from Verso in 2015 for $58 million after the paper mill shut down in December 2014.
