Open Blue Cobia

Cobia or Lemonfish is a popular sport caught game fish native to the Caribbean, long prized for its exceptional taste, high nutrition and versatility in raw or cooked applications. Open Blue Cobia is a truly versatile fish that offers a world of culinary possibilities. The high quality sashimi grade means you can enjoy it raw or cooked across a wide range of applications. As for the taste – it can't be beat; with a rich buttery flavor it is uniquely delicious any way you prepare it.


Open Blue believes in sustainable seafood. They provide fish with the best environment possible with the least impact to the ecosystem. A healthy and sustainable environment means a healthy and sustainable fish. They created a protected no take zone that consists of 2,500 acres of water concessions managed by Open Blue, where artisanal fishing is allowed and the area is free of commercial fishing. Open Blue also monitors the surrounding environment constantly and is proud to say there has been no traceable impact to the ecosystem. Open Blue is pleased to see the release of ASC standards for Cobia announced by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). Open Blue has been closely involved with the development of these standards from the beginning, with the support of leading industry experts. The company completed its first internal audit of the ASC draft standard in June 2016 and expects to complete full ASC compliance by Fall 2017. Open Blue is committed to responsible farming practices to meet the most stringent standards to satisfy its Customers. Open Blue achieved both the Global Gap and Friend of the Sea standards earlier in 2014 and 2015. It is also on track for completion of ISO 9001 and BAP audits by year end.

“This reflects the ongoing commitment of our team to feed current and future generations in harmony with the ocean.” says Dave Plumer, CEO of Open Blue. “Our Customers trust Open Blue Cobia as a reliable, sustainable source of heart healthy, delicious fish, responsibly raised in the pristine, deep waters of the Open Ocean.”


Open Blue moved fish farming offshore into the deep waters using innovative, open ocean aquaculture technology. Their fish are raised in a vertically integrated platform that has neutral impact on the environment and complete traceability into the life of the fish. Excellence and innovation is at the heart of everything. Starting from a state of the art hatchery, to processing operations, to distribution network, they take extreme care to harvest the perfect fish, with complete traceability at every step. Fish are raised in an open water environment, far offshore and away from sensitive ecosystems. Located 8 miles off the coast of Panama where waters are deep, clean and pure. Fish are raised in low-density, fully submerged pens; swim in high-energy currents and never see the same water twice. This approach means a natural growing environment for fish, lower risk of disease and no impact to the surrounding ecosystem.
