Anthony Dellinger creates sustainable substitute for bait fish
Filmed and edited by Martin W. Kane, UNCG Magazine

Anthony Dellinger '14 PhD had a delightfully fishy experience with UNCG. He rigorously researched a sustainable replacement for bait fish while earning his doctorate at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, a joint venture of UNCG and NC A&T State. And thanks to the entrepreneurial focus of the school, and a partnership with Professor Christopher Kepley, that research has become a viable business.

Organobait was formulated to replace the use of wild fish stocks as the primary bait in commercial lobster and crab traps.

He praises JSNN's unique nature, which emphasizes not only academics but also teaches business aspects of the field including funding, business development and patent creation. “It offers students an extremely novel and diverse educational experience.”
