Species Name:Rachycentron canadum
Cobia are the sole member of their scientific family, the Rachycentridae.
Where – Panama
How – Farm Raised
Cobia 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
