A Costa Rican company, Remora XYZ, has developed an impressive technology to ensure that fish are caught in a sustainable manner. This young company was the only American one chosen to participate in a Norwegian program that aims to accelerate businesses that have a positive impact on the sea.
The Costa Rican startup came about as a project of Imagine XYZ but gained enough traction to branch out as its own company. It connects consumers with fishing operators who use responsible methods. It was chosen from over 500 firms that applied to enter the program. It will now have help growing profits.
The company monitors, at a low cost, fishing vessels and specific fishermen. It collects information about the activities carried out and later connects operators with responsible customers. It goes after a lack of transparency in the value chain. A certificate from this company guarantees that the product was not from a protected area.
