The Fish 2.0 competition for sustainable seafood businesses is a global business competition that has attracted 170 entrants this year. The global competition connects sustainable fishing and aquaculture businesses with potential investors. The competition finals will occur in November at Stanford University, where 36 finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their business plans to investors and win prizes.
According to Fish 2.0 founder Monica Jain, roughly 70 percent of the world’s fisheries are fully exploited, overexploited or have already collapsed under the pressure of a $390 billion global seafood market. Some seafood industry analysts expect seafood demand to double by 2050. In order to meet this growth, the seafood industry will need to innovate and promote sustainable wild fisheries and aquaculture.
Fish 2.0 businesses are part of the solution.
