Blue Ocean monitors key water quality parameters to make sure effluent from the farm does not exceed the carrying capacity of the surrounding waters. We analyze benthic samples to make sure the farm does not change the nature of animal populations in the local seabed.
We report and track all observations and interactions with marine mammals and seabirds at the farm, looking for any changes in wildlife behavior. All of our environmental monitoring is conducted through partnerships and permits with the following State of Hawaii and Federal Agencies.
