Craig Kasberg began working on commercial fishing boats in Alaska at age 14, and by 19 was captaining his own fishing vessel in Southeast Alaska. Craig then started a sustainable seafood marketing business, where he began to envision the development of technology to upcycle seafood byproducts as the opportunity that could make the largest impact to the industry. Craig eventually began to focus full-time on seafood byproduct upcycling, with the goal to reduce waste and encourage sustainably managed fisheries. This led to the development of the world’s first green process of turning discarded fish skins into aquatic leathers. At the same time, Craig was working on developing extraction methods for producing chitosan from crustacean shells - which led to the co-founding of Tidal Vision in 2015 with partner Zach Wilkinson.
