Held concurrently with the Secretary of State's June 16th and 17th Our Ocean Conference, the Fishackathons partner fishery experts with technologists to create innovative technology which address sustainable fishery challenges.
Fishery experts will define the challenges to guide technologists in creating concrete solutions that will make real and sustainable impacts.
The Fishackathons are in partnership with U.S. Department of State.
Today, this incredible resource [the ocean] is threatened. It’s threatened by unsustainable fishing, by pollution, by climate change. Indeed, how we respond to these challenges is literally going to help determine the future of our planet.
