We've been following the competition at Fish 2.0 and we are astounded at the incredible diversity of ways people are tackling the issues surrounding our seafood.

In our current issue of W-E Digest, Monica Jain writes about Fish 2.0's seafood industry competition where innovators pitch their ideas to investors.   This week they announced that from a pool of 170 companies, 37 competitors have been invited to pitch their products on November 10-11 at Stanford University in California.

"The group is also notably international: only 17 businesses are based in the United States, including two that also have 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." - Fish 2.0 newsletter.
