We need YOU to help create innovative solutions to help address the challenges threatening the health of our ocean and the life it sustains.
On June 5, the National Aquarium (in partnership with the Department of State) will host our second-ever fishackathon.
The goal of this hackathon is to empower consumers to become Seafood Smart, creating a market that not only demands sustainable seafood but also rewards the watermen who put that to practice. The National Aquarium’s Seafood Smart program will assist consumers in navigating regional and local seafood while promoting sustainable change using market-based instruments and a supply-chain approach.
We seek to design and implement a tool that can easily integrate into current marketplaces that will drive social and economic change surrounding seafood choices. This development will provide information, access and local, sustainable seafood sourcing for users.
In addition to the fun happening in Baltimore, hackathons will also be taking place throughout the United States and Canada and across the Atlantic in the United Kingdom and South Africa. The winning solution from our event will go on to compete against other winning teams for a grand prize.
