USAID, together with the USAID Maximizing Agricultural Revenue through Knowledge, Enterprise Development and Trade project, will host a Technology Innovations Forum – Creating a More Sustainable and Responsible Seafood Industry in Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, on January 22 and 23, 2015.

The forum will bring together organizations, companies and entrepreneurs from across Asia and across seafood value chains – producers, processors, buyers and retailers. Innovators will showcase their technology solutions in sustainable aquaculture and fisheries production, seafood sourcing and more.

The forum will host a Challenge Award that will reward entrepreneurs, organizations and/or companies that are developing and implementing innovative technology and business solutions to address challenges in sustainable fisheries and aquaculture. Finalists will present their work at the forum.
