American Unagi

Sara Rademaker is the founder and CEO of Maine’s first eel farm, American Unagi, based in Waldoboro. She started the business with a desire to raise Maine eels locally, instead of shipping them abroad. American Unagi uses a

land based aquaculture system. Eels are caught by local fisherman from Maine rivers when they are tiny, and then brought in to be grown to harvest size. The company supplies restaurants and chefs all over the country.
