The catfish industry has had its ups and downs but remains one of the most important aquaculture industries in the US. Recent technological advancements have increased productivity, but catfish farmers still face significant challenges.
For decades, scientists have been trying to figure out how to eliminate unpleasant flavors from catfish contaminated by blue-green algae — a problem which causes expensive harvesting delays. Now, the USDA-ARS is asking the public to share their ideas via crowdsourcing.
NASA is sending people back to the moon! This mission will be extremely useful to fill critical knowledge gaps on the lunar surface, including furthering our understanding of the lunar environment and available lunar resources.
Hugo Shelley lives in the world of problem solving. With six HeroX challenge wins under his belt, Hugo's mission is to find solutions to big problems, using new technology, design, and collaborative thinking.
We partnered with HeroX for a joint bid to respond to a government request for proposal. Our experience with the HeroX team was extremely positive.
There were times where flexibility was critical, their team took the approach of a true partnership. Working against tight timelines, collaborating virtually, operating in different time zones; any one of these points could have created challenges, not for this team. HeroX went the extra mile, which is a rarity for us in our past experiences in collaborating with other partners. The responsive, professionalism and level of expertise was noted and appreciated.
Other than their capabilities, we were impressed by their overall team in the way they conducted themselves. There was true core values alignment. We would absolutely invite the opportunity to work with their team again.
