Open Ocean Exchange

Meet OOX.

Founded on a vision for a transparent, and secure future for seafood trade.

OOX emerged from a shared frustration with the way that seafood has been traded. In our industry, the absence of data, caused by the reliance on email and social media for trading, made the process exceedingly challenging. We knew the solution was digital.

From the outset, we did not want OOX to “disrupt” the seafood trade. Instead, we wanted to use modern technology to assist buyers, sellers and agents complement how we currently trade. We had seen similar technology solutions successfully applied to other agricultural commodities.

OOX partnered with the London Fish Exchange, who have extensive experience building and operating financial market exchanges throughout Europe. OOX reflects a multi-million-dollar investment in a seafood trading exchange that suits the nuances of the live seafood industry.

OOX vision is to become the primary method of trading seafood to China and Greater Asia region. We believe a trusted and independent platform will be good for the seafood industry and ease the frustration – making it easier for everyone involved in the trade.

We look forward to welcoming you as members of OOX.
