Open Ocean Trading is a marketplace that allows buyers and sellers to trade commercially harvested and farmed seafood products in forward time. Forward contracts remove variability in an inherently uncertain and volatile seafood industry to enable stable and fair pricing for all parties. The online platform, FYSH-X, allows buyers and sellers to directly and anonymously negotiate in a secure environment to know in advance what their product is worth and to provide transparency. OOT primarily works with day-boat fisherman to provide buyers with fresher high quality fish that reaches market faster than traditional distribution methods.
