How Open Blue Sea Farms Contributes to Preserving the Ocean
Open Blue Sea Farms was founded with the goal of being the most sustainable source for whitefish on the planet. The world's current food sources are responsible for one-quarter of global emissions. We're dedicated to developing aquaculture farming as a sustainable source of protein that may fulfill much of the world's seafood demand by 2050.
Our sustainable Cobia fish is grown in open ocean, in its natural environment and is available for home delivery via our website. Here's how Open Blue Sea Farms proudly contributes to preserving the ocean and the thousands of species that call it home.
Staying Conscious of Sensitive Ecosystems
Ecosystems take thousands of years to reach an equilibrium state in which all species in a region are comfortable. Even a minor intrusion can snowball into major disruptions and cause havoc across an ecosystem. Some experts believe that humans are already responsible for 99% of endangered species. In fact, the Holocene epoch, the 11,700-year time period from the end of the last ice age until now, is considered one of Earth's six major mass extinction events.
At Open Blue, we're doing our part to minimize the impact of humans on our environment. Our sites are carefully chosen to not disrupt the local ecosystems. We're also working with institutions such as the University of Miami and Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science to develop an environmentally conscious blueprint for future aquaculture farms.
Developing a Solution to Slow Global Depletion of Fish Stocks
When fish stocks are overexploited, it leaves fewer fish to reproduce, lowering the population growth rate of fish species. As a result, there's an even smaller quantity of fish stocks to fish reaching an overexploitation of fish stocks. However, in Open Blue we're developing aquaculture farms to put an end to this vicious cycle.
Economists have shown that the privatization of resource pools improves overall economic efficiency. However, in farms, there is no risk of exploitation to begin with. Cobia populations at Open Blue fish farms are maintained at an optimal size to obtain reliable and sustainable yields.
Minimizing Our Environmental Impact to Become a Sustainable Food Source
Food production is a major global polluter, and protein-rich animal foods are to blame for the most part. But many people can't rely only on plant protein. Aquaculture farms provide a sustainable alternative to the mass-production fish and dairy industries.
Fish farming is already far more environmentally friendly than other animal food industries. Open Blue is working toward a net-zero production cycle. Our recently launched byproduct processing plant converts waste into fish meal and fish oil, bringing us closer to our sustainability goals.
