Last quote by Orin Hoffman

We've kind of moved in. We work in folks' backyards; we've had water tanks in, you know, questionable spots. This is a pretty classic start-up technology story. But instead of looking for an I.P.O., we are looking just to raise enough funding for us to get robots out there to make an impact. Basically the strategy is to take advantage of the fact that lionfish have no known predators, so they stay relatively stationary underwater, even when the robot approaches. So we stun the fish, then suck the fish up into a collection tube and repeat.feedback

Orin Hoffman has most recently been quoted in an article called In America’s Cup Waters, a Robot Takes On an Invasion of Lionfish. Orin Hoffman said, “Below recreational dive depths there are still enormous populations of lionfish, and some biologists believe they are doing most of their breeding at depths below the typical 90 feet that recreational divers swim at. So the goal is to have our robot go down to 400 feet and be easy to use so commercial fishermen can efficiently use it. In order to do that, we need to make it low cost, so we're targeting $1,000 or under. That's a really hard problem.”. Orin Hoffman has been quoted a grand total of 5 times in 1 article.
