The controversial Netflix documentary "Seaspiracy" has opened up a healthy debate and driven interest from investors in sustainable seafood projects, according to Amy Novogratz, partner and co-founder of sustainable aquaculture investment fund Aqua-Spark.

Novogratz was asked about the film's impact on the aquaculture and seafood industries during the "Seafood Latin America" webinar hosted internationally from Brazil.

"I absolutely think it has serviced us in a big way," Novogratz said. "It's got people talking and opening up around what their challenges were and trying to focus on different solutions together."
