It's not easy having eyes all over the scene, being around to take in all the wild visuals at all the worthwhile places in the city. There are, however, those parties and gallery openings where a fortunate photographer can point and shoot. Every week, in collaboration with World Red Eye, New Times brings you a solid recap of all the recent experiences you might've missed around Miami. It's impossible to be everywhere, but, hey, we can try to keep our Eyes on Miami.

Atlantic Sapphire, a company transforming the salmon industry with its proprietary Bluehouse™ facilities, has made a new home in South Florida with its first official Bluehouse™ on U.S. soil. The revolutionary bio-secure facility serves as the equivalent of a greenhouse, where fish are given ideal conditions to thrive with a 95 percent water-to-fish-ratio and a simulated environment allowing the salmon to swim against strong currents as they would in the wild. This past month, the company celebrated a vision ten years in the making with its first U.S. harvest. With water sourced from the Floridian Aquifer, the Bluehouse Salmon is not only good for the consumer (delicious, heart-healthy, free of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and microplastics), but also good for the environment. World Red Eye met up with Atlantic Sapphire’s chief executive officer, Johan Andreassen, to discuss the monumental first harvest and the journey towards a more sustainable future.
