Look who's showing the world how to bring seafood to customers in the 21st century. Red snapper and grouper fishermen from the Gulf of Mexico. It wasn't that long ago that these guys were arguing for more overfishing, despite a decades-long overfishing debacle that meant there were few fish left.

Now, Gulf of Mexico fishermen are enjoying the fruits of more fish in the ocean and more fish to catch, and they're innovating to make their seafood more than just the best-tasting seafood.

Through Gulf Wild, Gulf fishermen are tagging fish when caught, and tracing that information all the way through the supply chain.

I'm impressed.
