Forever Oceans courts Cuba

Jason Heckathorn of Forever Oceans was the rare delegation member who came in with the goal of building a Cuban outpost. His company, an unlikely spinoff from Lockheed Martin, applies command-and-control technology developed for defense to deep-sea farms for sushi-grade fish.

Rather than sell a $30 million system and leave, the company wants to find a local partner but stay involved to maintain the technology and ensure it is run in an environmentally sensitive way.
