Donna Lanzetta is an attorney and entrepreneur with a passion for sustainable seafood production. Motivated by a concern for our world’s growing population, our fixed/declining wild fish stocks, and the urgent need to feed our burgeoning numbers, Manna Fish Farms is currently pursuing offshore permits to operate open ocean fish farms in Federal waters. In NY, Manna’s preferred site is 8.6 miles off the coast of Eastern Long Island, and in FL, benthic surveys are completed identifying a preferred site 23 miles off the coast of Pensacola Beach, Florida.
The Manna Fish Farms team and collaborators include experienced farmers, marine biologists, top scientists, ocean and electrical engineers, along with numerous educational institutions and universities. Manna is supported by sustainable aquaculture supporting state, federal, and municipal political representatives. Manna Fish Farms, Inc. is the proud recipient of capital match grants from NYS Governor Cuomo’s LI Regional Economic Development Council as part of the New York Empire State Development Program.
Ms. Lanzetta received her J.D. from Pace University School of Law, and her undergraduate degree in Business Marketing/Management from LIU-Southampton College, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. It is the plan of Donna Lanzetta and her company Manna Fish Farms, Inc. to operate transparently as they explore new models for ocean farming, and as they build their land-based operations and integrate submersibility, automation, new feed compositions, renewable energy and more into the Manna Fish Farms offshore farms.
