Panama trip - for Open Blue Cobia
ABOUT OPEN BLUE
Based 8-10 miles offshore, a farming operation is fully submerged at depths of up to 250 feet, Open Blue is a pioneer and the world’s leader in raising fish in the open ocean. Situated in a protected no-take zone of 2,500 acres of water, this pristine natural environment is home only to Open Blue and indigenous marine species including magnificent whale sharks!
ABOUT THE TRIP
A group of high level chef’s and people working in the culinary world where asked to visit Panama to see the process of farming this sustainable Cobia fish.
Of-course we visited not only the farm, but some very cool other places in Panama.
And when traveling with culinary like minded people…food…cooking is a big part of the trip. We went to the local market and every chef created it’s own dish with Cobia. We took over a whole restaurant and served the local people with amazing food.
