Fish 2.0 has a prominent focus on Aquaculture
Monica Jain of Fish 2.0 has published the below article on Fish 2.0 finalists pitching aquaculture ideas. Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems is just one of the 37 businesses leading their focus on aquaculture. Nearly half of the finalists in the competition have some focus on the aquaculture industry; some RAS, some aquaponics, some deep water, and some technologies or inputs to improve the aquaculture industry.
"Projected to grow nine-fold over the next 15 years, this segment includes the emerging and rapidly improving technology of self-contained, land-based Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS). Unlike open-water systems, RAS tanks can operate almost anywhere in the world, including urban and even desert environments."
Our company is one of the latest to offer premium prizes to finalists in this seafood businesss competition. Read the latest here: http://www.greenbiz.com/article/sustainable-aquaculture-surfaces-target-food-investors

Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems (https://pentairaes.com/) is a leader in the design and manufacture of aquaculture systems. The Pentair Foundation is a Fish 2.0 sponsor.
