Chattanooga, TN (WDEF ) –     Some tech-savvy Chattanooga residents help make sure our Oceans don’t run out of an important food source for the planet.
    Two teams who worked during the Tennessee Aquarium’s 24-hour "Fishackathon" earlier this month made it to the final round of the international Fishhackathon prize.
    One team focused its efforts on the consumer’s role in promoting sustainable seafood, called Sustainable Suppers.
    Another Chattanooga team created the "Flood Plain Projector."
    Tennessee Aquarium  spokesman Thom Benson said that out of the 12 host cities around the world for this year’s Fishackathon, Chattanooga is the only city that ended up with 2 finalists.
