04/02/2016: Australian software company PanLogica working with innovative Cobia producer Open Blue
A Tasmanian company who plays a vital role in more than one quarter of the world’s farmed Atlantic salmon production is now helping innovative deep ocean fish farming company Open Blue in Panama.

PanLogica is a Hobart-based company that provides unique and world leading value chain planning software called Neptune.

Neptune takes account of financial, biological and processing considerations for the aquaculture sector and allows decision makers to consider literally millions of potential outcomes to any planning situation and choose the most sustainable and profitable one for the business.

Open Blue is an innovative new company who farm a popular species of fish called Cobia in submerged pens 8 miles off the Panama coast.

The submerged pens in strong ocean currents facilitate water circulation resulting in excellent fish health and improved environmental outcomes.

"Excellence and innovation is at the heart of everything that we do at Open Blue and we see the same attributes in PanLogica. Neptune will enable us to explore the best plans for Open Blue to deliver the perfect fish to our global customers” said Shayne De Lima, Director of Corporate Development at Open Blue Sea Farms.

“We are thrilled to be working with such an exciting company, especially given their innovative approach to aquaculture and environmental sustainability,” Dr David Wright said.

“Neptune helps our clients produce fish in the most efficient and environmentally sustainable way, and it has huge potential to expand into other aquaculture opportunities such as shellfish and other fish species.”

“We are very lucky to be working with some of the most exciting aquaculture companies in the world, while being based here in Tasmania,” Dr Wright said.

"The relationship with our customers such as Marine Harvest and Huon Aquaculture has been one of the foundations for us to continue to grow and innovate with our product."

Huon Aquaculture is widely recognised as one of the most innovative aquaculture companies in the world, and Marine Harvest is listed on the New York and Oslo stock exchanges and is the largest producer in the world.
