Characteristics

CharacteristicsCobia are delicious and a favorite of sport fishermen… The problem with catching them commercially in the wild is that they don’t school  Enter aquaculture!  Cobia grow quickly and have been growing in popularity for fish farmers over the last decade.  We love them because of their firm, delicious flesh!  We are sourcing our Cobia from an innovative farm in Panama – learn more about Open Blue at their website www.Openblue.com
