On May 15, we have celebrated the Opening Day of the Second Edition of Fishing Accelerator in Vigo.

We had the opportunity to listen to eleven presentations of disruptive technologies in the fields of sanitation in production plants, the selectivity of the fishing gears with amazing ligthing devices, the use of algae for preservation purposes or ship management and optimization of routes software among others.

It was an intensive day of presentations and meetings where our 8 corporate partners had the opportunity to speak directly with representatives of cutthing edge tech companies and startups.

ARVIMascato-ArpescoBudenheimFrigoríficos del MorrazoOpromarOrpaguPescanova and Pescapuerta had the opportunity to learn more about the technologies and establish the next steps in the pilots they are going to develop together.

The startups and technologies presented in this second edition of Fishing Accelerator are:
