Grace Hsieh ’16 Thesis Project Fishwish Selected by FastCompany for World Changing Ideas Finalist

Launched this year, the World Changing Ideas Awards showcase honors businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that offer innovative solutions to the issues facing humanity. All of the finalists are highlighted in the April issue of the print magazine, which hits newsstands on March 27th.

Fishwish is a mobile app that strives to disrupt the food scene by offering a new way to empower eco-eaters to make more sustainable choices. You can find over 7,200 sushi restaurants on Yelp in NYC, but it’s hard to make a sustainable decision when it comes to eating sushi. Even people who enjoy raw fish, rarely know about other options. Currently, restaurants are not very transparent in providing sustainable options people can choose from when ordering.

Fishwish curates existing restaurant menus based on the Seafood Watch standard recommendation for consumers when they are selecting sushi’s from the menu. By making the eco-eating process easy and convenient, we can make sustainable decisions.
