Workshop to improve fisheries business

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, February 03, 2015

ENTREPRENEURS working in the Pacific fisheries sector can expand their business thanks to a new global initiative.

Fish 2.0, launched globally earlier this month, is a business competition that will allow investors to connect with seafood businesses. In turn, the competition will also reap benefits for investors, giving them an opportunity to win more than $180,000 in prizes.

Backed by a range of international foundations, Fish 2.0 and World Wildlife Fund Pacific will be holding a workshop for interested businesses from March 10 to 12 in Nadi.

"The workshop is an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs and existing businesses in the seafood, aquaculture and mariculture sector in the Pacific to improve on their business and help them connect with investors interested in investing in the region," said WWF Pacific conservation director Sally Bailey.

"We are calling on entrepreneurs in the seafood business in the Pacific to be part of the workshop and because of the limited number of seats available, it's a first come first serve opportunity and successful applicants will be provided travel stipends."
