For over a decade, Open Blue has been revolutionizing fish farming by moving it into the open ocean, far away from sensitive ecosystems, and raising a native fish in its warm-water habitat. We are global leaders in deep sea mariculture known for our pioneering research and game-changing technologies, developed in collaboration with the world’s leading labs and universities. We’re driven to find a better way to feed the planet.
At Open Blue, sustainability is woven into every aspect of our operations. It is our prime business driver, built on our deep understanding that the well-being of the earth, the oceans, our staff and partners, and our customers and communities are entirely interrelated. We track our progress using a three-pillared approach that reflects our ongoing commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Open Blue is guided by three strategic goals:
Growing our fish in harmony with the ocean
We believe the future of sustainable aquaculture is in the open ocean – far offshore from sensitive ecosystems. Our native, warm-water Cobia fish are raised eight miles off the Caribbean coastline in stress-free, low-density, fully submerged pens, and swim in high-energy currents – never seeing the same water twice.
We are proud to produce a pure, healthy, great tasting white fish – super high in Omega-3s and free of contaminants, hormones, colorants and pesticides. We are equally proud of our positive workplace culture and community scholarship and betterment projects in the communities where we operate.
Measuring and managing our progress
We exceed the highest standards in the mariculture industry, and comply with all regulations and third-party certifications. Every day we look for more ocean-friendly, fish-friendly and human-friendly ways to do business. Our commitment to structured, continuous improvement keeps us at the forefront of our industry.
