The article states production at "500 tonnes of sea salt a year". That might salt many an order of chips, but it is not much for a plant this size. The equivalent figure of one million pounds annually does appear in several tourist summaries, including:
but articles that specifically discuss the Morton Salt plant speak of one million tonnes annually, such as this 2008 International Herald Tribune report [] discussing a strike at the plant:
"The 82-worker strike began on Friday and comes at a busy time for the company, which harvests about 7,000 tons (6,400 metric tons) of salt daily on Inagua island. It is struggling to meet its annual quota of producing 1.2 million tons (1 million metric tons) of salt."
or this 2007 Bahamas Journal report [] discussing the effect of heavier than normal rains on salt production:
"According to Mr. Moultrie, the salt harvesting operation requires less than 30 inches of rain a year to produce its annual quota of 1.2 million tons of salt."
