The Innovation Award

Highly Commended

This year, the judges recognised two outstanding entries for their potential to make a positive, long-term impact on the marine environment as opposed to using new, innovative technology. As such they have been given joint recognition in the form of Highly Commended.

Dr Anne Kapuscinski

Director, Coastal Science and Policy Program and professor, environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, for aquaculture microalgae feed

Whether they are wild or farmed, carnivorous fish require other fish to feed on. But with aquaculture being the world’s fastest-growing food sector, the need for feed – sustainable sources of protein that do not adversely upset the food web of marine ecosystems – is becoming ever more pressing. As director of the Coastal Science and Policy Program and professor of environmental studies at UCSC, she and her team investigate the development of microalgae-based feeds that support fish growth and omega-3 content without damaging healthy aquatic ecosystems.

Silent Yachts

Silent 64

In January 2018, after almost 15 years’ research, Klagenfurt-based Silent Yachts delivered the Silent 64 a 19.4-metre solar-hybrid ocean-going catamaran, to its owner. It was a huge step towards developing a completely emission-free yacht, for even sailing yachts tend to rely to some extent on diesel or gasoline engines and onboard generators. The Silent 64 proves that eco-credentials are no barrier to luxury and stands to shake up the way superyachts are powered, much like electric cars are disrupting the automotive industry.
