Headquartered on the Caribbean coast of Panama and founded in 2018, Panasea is the first open-ocean sea cucumber hatchery.
We are guided by Three Interconnected Beliefs:
– We can supply the market’s growing demand for sea cucumbers; AND
– We can protect and preserve the local marine ecosystem; AND
– We can provide jobs to a challenged local economy.
To meet the global demand for sea cucumbers created by depletion due to overfishing;
To regenerate local populations of sea cucumbers with all their myriad environmental benefits;
To provide economic opportunities in impoverished Caribbean regions.
