Smart Fisheries

For me, smart fisheries covers the full gamut, from collecting the data and increasing the knowledge in support of better resource and ecosystem management; to improved vessel and gear design for better performance efficiency and reduced impacts in terms of bycatch, bottom impacts, and greenhouse gas emissions; to achieving better processing yields and quality and increasing by-product utilization to maximize the market value achieved from every fish taken from our ocean.
