State Dept & HackerNest Global Series – February 10-11, 2018
Bringing the world together to protect life in our waters, make fisheries and aquaculture more sustainable and equitable, and preserve our planet’s future.
First organized by the US Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships in 2014, Fishackathon inspires the creation of digital solutions to address sustainable fisheries challenges.
Overfishing and other serious problems harm marine environments and can devastate already-struggling, small-scale fishing marketplaces and communities, many of them in developing countries. Protections exist, but actual enforcement faces major obstacles.
To combat this, Fishackathon brings together thousands of concerned designers, developers, and subject matter experts for a weekend to build practical tech solutions to endemic problems defined by the world’s most respected fisheries experts.
Save our waters, save our world!
