SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY AUG 1, 2015

The results are in! The Gulf Coast Innovation Challenge has found their five finalists! Each of the finalists will receive a grant up to $25,000 to prototype its solution. The first challengers are a group of individuals looking to develop advanced solar-powered filtration technology for marine environments to access potable freshwater and ensure maximum productivity. Next up are Mote Marine Lab Biomedical, Immunology, and Microbiology Research Scientists looking to use certain marine bacterial specials as a source for developing novel antibiotics and therapeutic agents. The third group’s challenge is to develop a fishery for the invasive lionfish species in order to ensure long-term health of Gulf of Mexico ecosystems. Group four is looking to isolate active agents from Mote Marine’s existing shark-derived cancer fighting material to help improve quality of life for cancer patients. Last but certainly not least, is a collection of researchers looking to conduct a Gulf Fisheries improvement project and build a no-waste processing plant that produces multiple value-added products including fish fillets, omega-3 fish oil, and fishmeal. Watch as these five innovative teams contend to be declared the winner of this year’s Gulf Coast Innovation Challenge to develop the blue economy of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
