Fishackathon was first organized in June 2014 around Secretary Kerry’s inaugural Our Ocean conference, and has continued as a lead-up event to subsequent Our Ocean conferences, including the 2016 conference in September. In 2014, Fishackathon brought together coders at aquariums and tech hubs in 5 domestic cities. Last year, the second annual Fishackathon took place in 12 cities around the world. This year, the event has expanded to 40 cities on six continents, as well as a virtual hackathon.
