Atlantic Canada: Where the World’s Subsea Technology Grows

; When you look at the Ocean Business today, where – by region or market sector – do you see opportunity, and why? I think it’s food. (Considering that both the defense and oil and gas markets are already more mature in this sense, and perhaps not the best candidates for disruptive technologies). There are also huge opportunities in marine renewable energy; this is high velocity growth but it’s starting from nothing, so it’s not that big yet. But if you look at food from the ocean. I think disruptive opportunities around the use of science and technology in food extraction
