Half of the finalists and runners-up in the Fish 2.0 competition for sustainable seafood businesses are receiving high-value prizes providing invaluable connections, market insights, and training and consulting on improving their operations. The Open Door Prize sponsors and the Fish 2.0 advisory board announced the awards.
Fish 2.0 connects innovative fishing and aquaculture businesses with investors seeking seafood-sector opportunities that will produce financial, environmental and social returns. The competition culminated in the Fish 2.0 Competition Finals & Sustainable Seafood Innovation Forum, held November 10–11 at Stanford University, where six finalists received cash awards. Finalists and runners-up were eligible for the Open Door Prizes, which give winners crucial access to high-level buyers, market analysts and business advisors, and for professional service awards with a total value of $195,000.
The Fish 2.0 finalists overall showed significant potential and revealed how diverse the seafood sector is, said Manuel Gonzalez, managing director and head of the western region at Rabobank. “We particularly liked the global aspect of the contestants, the social impact and their commitment to a sustainable seafood industry.”
