Blue Ocean is at the forefront of marine finfish mariculture, particularly for Seriola spp. With our sister company OceanSpar we are defining the technology, tools and techniques for successful, sustainable open ocean mariculture in the United States.
Blue Ocean Mariculture it has completed its acquisition of the hatchery and offshore mariculture assets of Kona Blue Water Farms. This is the final step in Blue Ocean Mariculture’s transition to becoming the exclusive producer of premium, sashimi-grade Kampachi in Hawaii.
The two-year transition from Kona Blue to Blue Ocean involved recapitalizing the business and rebuilding the Hawaiian Kampachi™ biomass inventory. Blue Ocean acquired Kona Blue’s offshore mariculture lease in early 2010. The marine finfish hatchery was acquired in January 2011, and in May, 2011, Blue Ocean completed its first larval run of Hawaiian Kampachi™, known locally as Kahala or Almaco Jack. Those fish are now being harvested and sold throughout the U.S.
Kona Blue officially dissolved in November 2011 and the co-CEOs, Neil Sims and Michael Bullock, did not transition to the new company, which is headed by Todd Madsen, President.
