37 Innovative Seafood Companies to Pitch at Fish 2.0 Finals

Fish 2.0 has announced that 37 companies from an entry field of 170, have been chosen to pitch their seafood businesses to investors at the competition’s finals at Stanford University in November.

Nearly two-thirds (23) of the companies are post-revenue ventures that can demonstrate a market for their products—and those products are on the leading edge of innovation in aquaculture, aquaponics, technology, wild capture products, traceability, and the supply chain. The group is also notably international: only 17 businesses are based in the United States, including two with operations in Chile; six are in Canada; four are based in Latin America; five operate in the South Pacific; two are based in Europe; and three are in Southeast Asia.

“The diversity and breadth of the finalists shows that innovation in seafood is growing all over the world. We are especially excited to see sustainability and invention taking root in the markets where the fish are coming from, not just where they are consumed—and to see change happening throughout the supply chain,” says Monica Jain, Fish 2.0 founder and executive director.
