Magdalena Bay Baja California SurMexico
Baja Seas is the first complete cycle Yellowtail (Seriola lalandi) farm in the Americas. Its vision is to be a global leader in marine aquaculture. Respected for its innovation in aquaculture technology, harmony with the environment and social responsibility.
The original yellowtail stock for Baja Seas was bred from fingerlings produced at Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute. Renowned for developing methods of raising high-value marine fin fish species and sustainable ocean fishing practices. The fingerlings were transferred to Baja Seas’ state-of-the-art aquaculture farm on Bahia Magdalena, a pristine bay in southern Baja California. Future seed will be sourced from Baja Seas’ own hatchery, Ocean Baja Labs, located about two hours south of Ensenada. Baja Seas’ entire production is underscored by responsible technology. For example, it uses Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) in its hatchery to create a small water footprint by reducing pollution and disease; Fish are fed sustainable protein- and omega-rich sardines in a low Firsh In-Fish Out (FIFO) ratio; The fish are raised without antibiotics or parasiticides and semi-automated feeders and feed cameras prevent overfeeding.
