So the internet is disrupting conventional retailing structures.
Ho hum. So what else in new?
Infrequently, we stumble across something that demonstrates how our electronic nervous system can evolve a new business model that solves important problems for producer and consumer.

The case in point is CleanFish Alliance – a company that sets standards for producing high-quality, eco-friendly “artisanal seafood” – helps members meet those standards; helps manage distribution; and directs restaurant buyers and quality-driven consumers to sustainable sources for these products.
