& HEALTHY FISH:
A BETTER WAY TO
FEED THE PLANET.
For over a decade, Open Blue has been systematically revolutionizing the fish farming industry by moving it into the open ocean, far away from sensitive near shore ecosystems, and raising a native fish in its warm-water habitat. We are global leaders in deep sea mariculture, and are known for our pioneering research and game-changing technologies, developed in collaboration with the world’s leading scientific laboratories and universities. We’re driven by a desire to find a better way to feed the planet, and by our core belief that when we look after the health of the ocean and our fish, we provide better food for humans.

We see a future where native fish are grown in open ocean areas across the globe, feeding our planet’s growing population – especially in warm climate areas where populations are increasing at the fastest rate. And that’s not the only challenge we are helping to mitigate: our carbon footprint is considerably smaller than land-based agriculture. Read the 2016 Sustainability Report
Open Blue is guided by three sustainability 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.
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.
Caring for our people, customers and communities
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.
Since 2014, Open Blue has achieved the following recognized certifications
