This month 3300 participants in 35 countries met in cities across the world to spend a weekend finding digital solutions to sustainable fish challenges.

Fishackathon was first organised by the US Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships in 2014 and is held every two years. The organisation aims to help winning teams get their sustainable fish products to market. The winner of the 2016 Fishackathon was Great Lakes Savoir. It helps solve Asian carps spawning problems.
