Six seafood innovators capped the Fish 2.0 Competition Finals & Sustainable Seafood Innovation Forum in Palo Alto on Wednesday by earning cash prizes and top scores in their categories from the competition’s investor-judges. The winners are bringing to market creative approaches to key challenges in aquaculture, building consumer demand for sustainable seafood, reducing waste and supporting local fishing communities.

In the pre-revenue startup category (Track A), the top-scoring business demonstrating the strongest market potential was Kampachi Farms Mexico, an open ocean aquaculture business focused on growing sashimi-grade fish. The top-scoring business with the greatest potential for social and environmental impact was Nova Scotia–based SabrTech, whose RiverBox system provides algae-based aquaculture feed using waste streams from fish farms.

In the post-revenue early stage category (Track B), two businesses targeting millennials took the cash prizes: Salty Girl Seafood, a California-based packaged seafood company that sells portioned and premarinated sustainable fish, was the top-scoring business demonstrating the strongest market potential. Bureo, a California- and Chile-based venture that upcycles used fishing nets to create high-quality skateboards and sunglasses, was the top-scoring business with the greatest potential for social and environmental impact.
