Vision & Values
At Open Blue, we have a clear vision: to feed current and future generations in harmony with the ocean.
Strong moral and ethical principles underlie all we do in our business practices. For us, it’s a state of being and it’s why we strive to do what’s right, not what’s easy. We undertake innovative and responsible open ocean fish farming in a way that respects the ocean and enriches lives.
A healthy and sustainable environment means a healthy and sustainable fish, and keeping our waters pure and pristine is key to what we do.
Starting from our state-of-the-art hatchery, to our offshore open ocean farms, we take extreme care to raise the perfect fish. Open Blue is a pioneer in deep water, open ocean mariculture – our fully submersible SeaStations situated 8 miles offshore are designed to withstand the toughest ocean conditions such as strong currents, high wind speeds and wave heights.
By moving farming into the open ocean we are moving fish into large water masses where the currents are strong and fast. Our approach means a natural growing environment for our fish and careful site selection for each platform ensures there is no traceable impact to the surrounding ecosystem and seafloor beneath.
Cobia is a high quality, tropical marine white fish that is native to the Caribbean. The swift currents and pristine quality of the open ocean produce cleaner, healthier, faster-growing and tastier fish. Our fish are raised in stress-free, low-density, fully submerged “sea stations” in the best natural environment possible.
In 2007, Open Blue realized its vision for an offshore operation, and began a quest for the best location, advanced processes, and most natural environment to raise “the perfect fish”.
Determined to create the most innovative and sustainable operation possible, Open Blue selected the Caribbean coastal waters of Panama as an ideal location and Cobia as the perfect fish to feed a growing world – a fish with great flavor and texture, rich in Omega-3 and a minimal environmental footprint. A diverse management team and strong advisory board lead and guide the company as it continues to grow.
Then and now, Open Blue’s vision is to feed the world in a better way.
We have a dynamic, international team that blends worldwide expertise with a desire to make a difference.
We operate our own HACCP-certified processing plant in Panama City and have an experienced sales team based in Miami, California, Toronto, London, Paris, Panama and Amsterdam.
