Technology for fisheries

Technology for fisheries

Technologies and applied science can elevate all aspects of small-scale fishery management from improving methods of catching fish, evaluating fisheries management, aquaculture, and reducing bycatch. Explore how new innovations can help you sustain and maintain your fishery. 

Discussions

How can acoustics and other emerging technologies improve the management of highly valuable tuna fisheries off the coasts of Indonesia and the Philippines?

Join us for a 2-hr webinar to learn about this exciting new technology from researchers Dr. Joe Warren of Stonybrook and Dr Aaron Rice of Cornell University. We’ll also be joined by Joann Binondo, Sustainable Tuna Project Manager of World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, to discuss her experience in pursuing a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification process, and how these (and other) technologies could support ongoing efforts to certify sustainable tuna fisheries

We were all shocked in 2020 when Microsoft introduced Productivity Score which collects workplace data on employees. Nobody likes to feel that their telephone or computer is spying on them. Yet we often design technology for fisheries where data collected by a fisher disappears into the cloud, never to be seen by the fisher again. Now is the time to create a more just digital economy where all participants reap the benefits of their actions. In this webinar we present Innovación Azul, a digital ecosystem that connects 300,000 small-scale fishers in Mexico and mobilizes knowledge, innovation, and solutions that can be adopted in Mexico, Latin America, and beyond. Innovación Azul includes PescaData, a free and interactive mobile application that helps fishers and fishing organizations offer their products and services in the marketplace; share knowledge and seek solutions to common problems; and record catch, fishing effort, expenses, product prices, and more. We will also discuss the principles of data sovereignty in small-scale fisheries; how data could be used for management, research, and value creation; and the benefits - and challenges - of designing technology for small-scale fishers.

Today the Guiuan Development Foundation, Inc. and EDF Philippines officially launched the first SSF Hub in Brgy. Trinidad, Tubabao Island, Guiuan, Eastern Samar, Philippines, with the Organisasyon ng Mangingisda ng Trinidad (OMANGAT).

Next week (12th July) we will be hosting a Q&A discussion with experts on Blue Ventures Data Feedback Toolkit. The toolkit was curated by Blue Ventures, Abalobi and Mwambo colleagues back in April 2021 as a practitioners guide to use data in community based marine management.

Hi ICT4Fisheries Network,
What ICTs are you using? What tech are you interested in learning more about? Post below to share ideas and insights.

Hello everyone! Welcome to the ICT4Fisheries Network.

I'm Hannah, from Blue Ventures and one of the moderators of the network within the SSF Hub.

Five core functions of traceability technology

Through years of engagement with seafood businesses and technology companies, Future of Fish has developed five core business functions of traceability technology. All five must be in place in order to address seafood’s social and environmental ills effectively. Not only must robust end-to-end traceability track products on a batch-level basis, but it also must provide a level of corporate transparency at each step in the chain. Here are the five core functions:

Accelerating & communicating government fisheries data modernization

This report is a practical guide for those looking to improve government fisheries data systems and governance frameworks. A core part of our approach is to define and demonstrate the clear benefits of improved data systems to governments, a process that varies depending on individual as well as organizational goals and mandates.

New and emerging technologies for sustainable fisheries: A comprehensive landscape analysis

This document provides a landscape analysis of the technological ‘state of play’ as well as current activity relating to the use of new and emerging technologies to help solve common fishery-related challenges at the global, regional and national levels, including the individuals, organizations, countries and technology service providers engaged in these activities. Activities range from on-the-water technical implementations of cameras or other sensors to collect data, to regional scale efforts to monitor illegal fishing using satellites, to global scale efforts to streamline and modernize data management systems.

Portraits of Change Video Series

This eight-part video series seeks to raise awareness of the impacts of climate change and other stressors on fishers, fish workers and fishing communities across the globe. These videos provide a firsthand account of the battles faced by fishers and fish workers as they are faced with declining fish populations, increasingly common extreme weather events and disruptions due to climate change, COVID-19 and other stressors.

Manual de Buenas Prácticas en las Faenas de Pesca Artesanal

"El presente manual ha sido diseñado en el marco del proyecto "Fortalecimento de Prácticas de Pesca Sostenibles para la Autogestión: Empoderando Pescadores Artesanales Lambayecanos" (PNIPA-PES-SEREX-127), financiado por el Programa Nacional de Innovación en Pesca y Acuicultura (PNIPA). El objectivo del manual es contribuir con el foralecimiento de prácticas de pesca artesanal responsable de pescadores artesanales de San José - Lamayeque. El manual contiene informacón generada a través del dictado de módulos informativos teórico-prácticos, desarrollados a lo largo del proyecto."

Guía para la evaluación y mitigación de capturas incidentales de tortugas marinas y otros depredadores superiores en pesquerías artesanales

En los últimos 5 años, ProDelphinus ha probado la eficacia de diversos dispositivos tecnológicos de mitigación o reducción de capturas incidentales (e.i., luces LED y pingers) en pesquerías artesanales de redes, mostrando resultados positivos, especialmente en el caso de las tortugas marinas. En base a esta experiencia, ProDelphinus busca compartir los conocimientos adquiridos en la materia, es decir, aciertos y desaciertos experimentados en el tiempo, a través de la generación de un documento técnico. Para ello, se elaboró una guía de campo la cual aborda los principales temas de discusión entre estudiantes y egresados de carreras afines a las ciencias marinas y pesqueras que deseen iniciar investigaciones relacionadas a la pesca incidental o bycatch de tortugas marinas u otros depredadores superiores.

Information and communication technologies for small-scale fisheries (ICT4SSF) - A handbook for fisheries stakeholders

The aim of this report is to present evidence towards how Information and Communication Technologies for Small-scale Fisheries (ICT4SSF) might enable and support the implementation of the FAO’s Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines). We present case studies of ICT4SSF initiatives in different use areas to identify key themes and reflect on successes and failures.

A Fishery Manager's Guidebook

Fisheries management is a complex and evolving discipline and much is still being learned about what it involves, what works and what does not. The problem is compounded by the fact that fisheries management as a coherent discipline is still poorly defined and frequently equally poorly understood. This publication strives to identify the primary tasks in management of capture fisheries, with particular emphasis on sustainable utilization of the biological resources, and to demonstrate how these tasks should be integrated and coordinated to obtain the desired benefits from the biological resources in a sustainable and responsible manner.
