Green oceans strategy Green oceans strategy Presentation Transcript

  • GREEN OCEANS VENTURE CAPITAL
    Barbados as a Global Hub for Knowledge about Oceans Research and Fisheries
    SPEECH AT UNIVERSITY OF WEST INDIES AT CAVE HILL OCTOBER 13th, 2011
    www.jimdewilde.net
  • THE NEW HORIZONS OF INVESTMENT
    Preserving shared heritage ecosystems (rainforests, coral reefs, oceans)
    The intersection of health, environment and agriculture (food preservation, food quality management, nutrition management, bioremediation, incineration, industrial biotechnology).
  • Economic implications of marine ecology
    Cost of toxic algae
    Opportunities for new sensing technology in robotic fish
    Marine resource management as an environmental trust issue
  • New sources of value in a global green economy
    Sustainability has value
    Acosta and the creation of value from ECUADOR rain forests
    Arable land as a gold standard
    Daewoo and Madagascar
    East African botanicals and the need for specialized agricultural lands
  • The trends in global capital allocation
    CASE STUDY INVENTAGES
    AGRICULTURE 2.0 NEW SEED ADVISORS
  • Oceans and marine ecology knowledge as a cornerstone of environmental restoration
    There is no famine when communities can fish
    Ocean mining, ocean drilling have to be turned into green industries
    Water management and nutrient production are cornerstones of the new global economy.
  • GREEN OCEANS AGENDA - Barbados
    GLOBAL HUB GREEN OCEANS VENTURE CAPITAL (nanocomposites, coral transplants, aquaculture, wave energy) with capacity to invest and build companies to scale. See as model: AQUAGROFUND.
    UWI MARINE ECOLOGY/OCEAN SCIENCES as a scientific centre. Building collaborative networks online re oceans agenda.
  • Green Oceans
    Commercializing fisheries management
    Commercializing oceans management
    KEY TO GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL FUTURE
    OCEANA
    MARINE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL
    UBC FISHERIES RESEARCH
  • GLOBAL POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT OF OCEANS MANAGEMENT
    The scale of the commitment
    CASE STUDIES:
    MAURITIAN OCTOPUS
    INDONESIAN SEAWEED
  • CASE STUDIES FOR COURSE ON GREEN OCEAN VENTURES
    1. Underwater mining NAUTILUS
    2. Jellyfish as global warming indicator
    3. Fish barcode
    4. Indonesian seaweed
    5. Mauritanian octopus
    6. Sea cucumbers and nanocomposites
    7. Coral reef regeneration
    8. Ecological aquaculture TILAPIA
    9. Mussels and adhesives
    10. Wave energy
  • NETWORK OF EXPERTISE FROM THESE CASE STUDIES
    Management of ocean resources
    Application of new materials
    Expertise in ecological heritage management (coral reefs, ocean ecosystem)
    Fisheries inventory and green fishing strategies
  • Global environment – MAURITANIAN OCTOPUS
    MAURITANIAN OCTOPUS
    Wall Street Journal article in 2007
    Sustainable sushi
  • Mauritanian fishing
  • Global marine sciences research
    KAUST in Saudi Arabia
    WOODS HOLE
  • Case Study CORAL REGENERATION
    Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology 
    National Institute of Oceanography in Haifa
    “We have been replanting forests for 4,000 years, but we are only just now learning how to revive a coral reef,” said Mineo Okamoto, a marine biologist at Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (New York Times April 15th, 2009)  
     
  • Case studies ocean industries – wave energy
    University College Cork’s Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre
  • Ecological Aquaculture
    John Volpe University of Victoria
    Barry Costa-Pierce
    Global aquaculture
    Venture capital in AQUACULTURE, see Aquacopia
  • Case study oceans research -nanocomposites
    Sea Cucumbers and Nanotechnology Lead to Plastics That Can Change Softness When Exposed to Liquids
  • Strategic alliances between companies and GREEN OCEANS
    Starkist
    Acciona (water management)
    Vivendi (water management)
    Nautilus Minerals (underwater mining)
    Danish fish production industry
    Wave energy companies, e.g. OWEC , Pelamis, Ocean Power Technologies

    Knowledge about marine conservation and regeneration
    Commercializing marine biology and marine ecology
    Ocean industries (wave energy)
    New materials (biofuels, adhesives)
    Nutrition and global health (aquaculture and conserving fish stock)
  • OCEANS RESEARCH AND GREEN VENTURE CAPITAL
    Oceans research is good for the environment and an opportunity to create new sources of wealth
    Coastal zone management (fisheries, reef management, beach erosion) a cornerstone of real estate
    Food production and environmental quality are the new gold standard
    Marine ecology a leading venture capital category in the 2010s and beyond
