Atlantic Sapphire moved the first two commercial batches of salmon fingerlings from its hatchery to the feeding unit at its new Miami, Fla., facility on Monday.

This new milestone comes two months after the company reported it put its first 400,000 eggs in Bluehouse hatchery in Miami in November 2018.

Chief executive officer Johan Andreassen credits the move to a “tremendous effort” from the entire team and partners.

“These fish are swimming in crystal clear purified water from the Biscayne Aquifer,” Andreassen said in a post adding, “Blue is the new green!”
