BATH, Maine — The site of a former seafood cannery on the Kennebec River in Bath is up for sale.

The 5.6-acre property is owned by Bruce Poliquin, an unsuccessful candidate for the Maine Republican Party’s gubernatorial nomination.

The former Stinson Seafood cannery is on the market for $2.5 million.

The Portland Press Herald says the decision means Poliquin has given up on a plan to convert the site into a mixed-use development with condominiums, a restaurant, shops and a marina.

But the city of Bath refused to rezone the area to accommodate Poliquin’s proposed development.

The vacant cannery building was destroyed by a May 2006 arson fire.
