A private aquaculture group that had hoped to create a commercial fish hatchery on Mono County property on the Conway Ranch has filed a claim for more than $4 million in past and future damages against the county, according to the county.
Inland Aquaculture Group, headed by John Frederickson, has been trying to make a viable fishery at the site, with the county’s blessing, for the past several years.
But in the past few years, the relationship between the county and IAG has soured.
On Dec. 11, the county supervisors rejected the claim. IAG can pursue the issue further, should it so chose, including suing the county.
