about blue ocean mariculture hawaiian kanpachi

Hawaiian Kanpachi is a farmed fish of exceptional quality, grown with care in the clear, oceanic waters off Hawai'i island. 

Blue Ocean Mariculture was founded in 2009 to pursue the sustainable farming of local Hawaiian marine finfish. They are proud to be the only open ocean mariculture farm in the United States. With first-hand experience in commercial capture fisheries, they understand that some farming of the oceans is necessary and inevitable. Yet they also understand that mariculture has to be done smartly – with respect for local culture, ocean water quality, benthic health and wildlife. Blue Ocean farms each of its fish to the highest standards of quality and taste, in an environmentally conscious and safe manner, and with deep respect for the oceans.

SUSTAINABILITY

Blue Ocean operates a fully integrated mariculture facility, optimizing the life cycle of Hawaiian Kanpachi from hatch to harvest. All of their production begins with fertilized eggs from local brood fish, meaning no capture pressure on wild fish populations.

Blue Ocean Mariculture employs a variety of sustainable farming practices to reduce impact on ocean water quality, benthic health and wildlife.

Net pens are located in areas of high water exchange and fish stocking densities are restricted to preserve water quality and benthic health. Feed events are visually observed to reduce the risk of waste and benthic buildup.
Anchoring systems are designed to minimize the benthic footprint of the farm and net pen moorings are engineered to eliminate the risk of wildlife entanglement. Fully submersible net pens are employed to minimize the visual impact of the farm.
