AUSTIN -- Green is good for the 3,000 people attending the South By Southwest Eco conference.

The event's third year kicked off Monday, bringing collaborative thinkers to Central Texas. Their priorities range from climate change to alternative energy to water conservation and a sustainable food.

Wednesday's highlights included experts from the Smithsonian and the Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Shareholders' Alliance discussing overfishing in our seas and sustainable fishing methods. Also on hand were representatives from Darden and the Walton Family Foundation, updating the recently announced New Fishery Improvement Partnership Fund at the Clinton Global Initiative.

Another session focused on how schools can become greener and more engaging for students

Throughout the conference, breakout sessions gave startup representatives access to industry experts for advice on their businesses and careers.
