Aquaculture is the fastest growing segment of the food industry, but it is also the animal protein supply chain that causes retailers the most headaches with unreliable, untraceable farming practices employed across Asia and other regions. If agriculture and food is the last trillion-dollar industry in need of technology innovation, aquaculture is potentially the neediest recipient of investment dollars.
Most industry experts predict that aquaculture will change beyond recognition in the next decade. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization and scientists who wrote the EAT-Lancet report say aquaculture is one of the most efficient ways to supply more protein because fish converts feed more efficiently than terrestrial animals.
Innovations will be selected by aquaculture experts to participate in a world class non-residential 6-month Accelerator Program led by industry recognized Subject Matter Experts. The Challenge will culminate in a globally broadcast pitch webinar in October 2021, in front of hundreds of Investors and the entire Aquaculture Industry. A blue ribbon panel of judges will award a total of USD $400,000 in prizes including one USD $100,000 grand prize and other cash and regional prizes.
