Mo AlGermozi
CEO & President, Graphite Innovation & Technologies (GIT)
"As a member of Canada’s Ocean Supercluster we have been able to network with ocean minded companies and organizations. Together we were able to work towards common goals of training and talent development that will enable Indigenous community members to participate in the ocean economy. I am pleased the Ocean Supercluster is focusing on opportunities for and with Indigenous peoples and communities."
Steve Barrett
CEO, eDNAtec
"The technology advances from OceanDNA System come at a time when we are facing a global biodiversity crisis and when generation of large-scale biodiversity data is most critical. NFA and DFO collaboration with eDNAtec and the support from the Canada’s Ocean Supercluster and ERINL have yielded new, practical tools and protocols that enable large scale eDNA sample acquisition by non-scientists."
