Pacific Islands Track

The Fish 2.0 Pacific Islands track is for seafood business interested in growing by meeting investors and new trade partners, or investors or industry leaders interested in the latest innovations in seafood.

Events and Online "Readiness Assessment"

A series of workshops, pitch sessions and a Regional Innovator Forum were held together with the Australia track in Melbourne and Brisbane in 2018 and 2019. Since then, applicants have been entering the online Readiness Assessment process. The deadline for new applicants has now passed (it was May 19, 2019), and those that entered are currently being assessed by investors to see which qualify for the Fish 2.0 Global Innovators Forum, in November 2019.

The Pacific Islands track is made possible thanks to the support of:

State Dept logo
The U.S. Department of State supports global efforts to maintain healthy and productive marine ecosystems. We also seek to foster private sector-led growth, unlock the power of the marketplace, and facilitate the implementation of activities and partnerships to support commercially viable investment opportunities to develop fisheries-related businesses in the Pacific. In collaboration with Fish 2.0, the U.S. Department of State will help sustainable fisheries, mariculture, and aquaculture entrepreneurs from the Pacific Islands develop their businesses and connect with potential investors in the United States and elsewhere. This year we are pleased to partner with the Government of Australia’s Fisheries Research and Development Corporation to enable new opportunities for Pacific Islands businesses to integrate into regional and global supply chains. Funding provided by the United States Government will promote a healthy ocean and sustainable fisheries, which are closely tied to cultures, livelihoods, jobs, and food security in the Pacific Islands region.

We invite new partners to join as event sponsors for the Global Innovation Forum in Novemeber, 2019. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss this opportunity.
