COVE Outpost

Lobster Bait Challenge

Ever dreamt about building a better mousetrap?  Like to get your hands wet and talk to people working in and around the ocean every day?

The Lobster Bait Challenge will provide you with direct access to industry people – the harvesters, the seafood processors and the food scientists.  You will work with real fish bi-product materials in a controlled environment to develop your concept. And, if your idea is shortlisted, you will also have the opportunity to do a real time trial of your product at sea.

Plus, there is a $30,000 prize for the winning product and an opportunity to collaborate with an industry partner to bring the product to market!



START[2020] is an Atlantic wide sustainable innovation pitch competition for anyone creating new value with bioresources.

START[2020] was open to individuals, startups, and existing businesses who need support to develop their idea, to beta-test solutions, and to bring their idea to market. Five finalists were selected to pitch during the Atlantic BIOCON 2020 Virtual Series on July 14 at 2PM AST.
