“Hackathons” have been used in the technology industry to problem solve and find innovative answers. And the setup is now being used in the field of conservation as well. Recently, the the U.S. Department of State hosted a “Fishackathon” to develop solutions for fisheries management. The event “addressed one of the most vexing problems in conservation,” writes Matt Miller, “how to track illegal fishing through the supply chain and make fishing more sustainable.” Via The Nature Conservancy.
