Fish 2.0 Event For Aquaculture Innovators – Feb 2019
Investors, experts and seafood industry leaders will meet for the Fish 2.0 networking event on February 12-13, 2019. The session will be held at the Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center at the University of Southern Mississippi and will discuss US Gulf Coast and Midwest aquaculture.
Over 20 pitches from local aquaculture businesses will take place and participants will be able to tour the center, which provides an opportunity to see advanced technologies and discuss pressing issues in the industry.
Fish 2.0 aims to provide local businesses with tools and networking opportunities to grow. Director Kelly Lucas states that, “Marine aquaculture is growing, and advances in techniques, gear, automation and products occur in a moment’s notice. Connecting entrepreneurs and investors helps get these developments into the marketplace.”
Aquaculture is vital to the US in terms of seafood production, creating jobs and developing sustainable practices. Shellfish and finfish producers in particular are quickly expanding in the region.
The event is free to attend. Registrations must be completed online.
