Is ocean conservation the next climate tech? 7 investors explain why they’re all in
When I was younger, my family would often go on vacation to the beach. Every year, our trip would coincide with the orange and black fall season. As a child, I loved spending my weekends pigging out at the local concession stand stuffing my face with all of the
Today, the advent of biotechnology has led to a new era in which many seafaring industries are now able to extract resources more efficiently and sustainably. For example, modern fishing techniques can group fish together in larger schools, reducing the amount of time they spend swimming around and making them easier targets for fishing nets. In addition, oil exploration has become much more environmentally friendly thanks to innovations like deep-water drilling and hydraulic fracking.
In recent years, founders and investors have started to look for opportunities to conserve, and even enhance, the ocean’s resources rather than exploit them. This shift has led to new and innovative ways of solving ocean conservation challenges. One such example is a company called Oceans 8. Oceans 8 is a startup that uses artificial intelligence (A.I.) to track and monitor illegal fishing in the open seas. By using A.I., the company is able to more efficiently detect and prevent illegal fishing activities from happening. This technology could be vital in preserving our oceans’ resources for future generations.”
One thing that all of the investors mentioned was the need for companies to be transparent about their data sources and how they’re using them. John Leach, Managing Director at Real Ventures, said that he invests in technology companies with a good sense of social responsibility and transparency about their operations. He feels that investors need to know where their money is going in order to ensure responsible investment decisions.
While ocean conservation tech has been around for a long time, many of the startups in this space are looking to build new technologies or improve upon existing ones in order to make more impactful contributions. Ian Seymour from SB

Netflix is a streaming giant that has been in the business for quite some time now. The company has lowered its prices in over 100 territories across Africa, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific in order to keep subscribers subscribing. This move can only be seen as a success given that many people are already subscribed to multiple services. However, given how much money people are spending on streaming services each month, it will be interesting to see how Netflix manages to keep subscribers interested long term.
