Real-Time Reporting App to Avoid Unwanted Catches2020-03-17T15:55:27+00:00

Project Description

Following the European Union’s zero-catch advice for cod and whiting on the west coast due to a decline in stocks,  the Scottish Fishermen’s Organisation (SFO), the University of Aberdeen and Fisheries Innovation Scotland (FIS) are trialling state-of-the-art technology to avoid unwanted catches of these species.

Between now and the end of 2020, fishermen on the west coast of Scotland will be trialling a bespoke software system to report hauls of these species in ‘real-time’.

If catches are too high, an automatic alert will be triggered to inform other participating vessels in the vicinity so they can avoid these areas.
