Bo Simango

CEO, cofounder, Aquafort

48% of Canadians eat fish regularly, and by 2030 62% of this fish will come from aquaculture (fish farms). That is why Bo designed Aquafort to fortify food security and strengthen sustainable food production to sit at the intersection of cleantech and Agtech. The company delivers AI-powered solutions for sustainable aquaculture in the Atlantic region, which houses 45% of Canada’s aquaculture industry. Their predictive data analytics platform optimizes fish health and welfare by predicting production ecosystem health and automating fish behaviour monitoring. Their tech lowers losses by up to 50%. Bo always prioritizes sustainability over profits, as proven by pivoting from ocean-based fish farm environments, harmful to the ocean ecosystems, to land-based ones.
