Traditional Fisheries

From Shark Tank Season 04 Episode 19

Traditional Fisheries did not get an investment from the Sharks.


Traditional Fisheries

2 Reasons to Love Traditional Fisheries

1. Lionfish are an environmental menace, with no natural enemies.

2. We can reduce their numbers by encouraging people to eat them.

Our Take

What an unlikely investment opportunity. Not necessarily in a negative way, just in a "wow - never woulda thought I'd see THAT on Shark Tank" way. 

Apparently, the Lionfish is a menace to the oceans and these entrepreneurs intend to clean up the neighborhood... by eating the lionfish. Lots of 'em. 

They came looking for an investment so they could begin educating the public, the fishing industry, and the restaurant industry on why we should be catching and eating the lionfish instead of other, rarer fish. 

Despite several of the Sharks giving the boys praise for their high ideals and motives, the amount of money they were asking for was too little to tackle the Lionfish education problem.
