SMARTFISH H2020 D5.3: FishData analysis (Open access revision)

Abstract

The goal of SMARTFISH H2020 is to develop, test and promote a suite of high-tech systems for the EU fishing sector, thereby optimizing resource efficiency, improving automatic data collection for fish stock assessment, provide evidence of compliance with fishery regulations and reduce the ecological impact of the industry.

Here, we present a prototype system for visualising and studying information about catch composition and catch efficiency in fisheries. The system mainly consists of two web applications. One is based on data from automatic catch recording technologies and other onboard sensors, and shows information about a limited number of vessels. The other is based on publicly available official catch reports from the entire fishing fleet. SMARTFISH H2020 has also contributed to the development of a third application which provides forecasts of marine environmental conditions. The applications are aimed at three stakeholder groups: fishers, who may use them as decision support when planning their operations; fisheries managers, who may use them for real-time monitoring and control; and marine researchers, who may use them in a stock assessment setting.

This is an open-access revision of a confidential deliverable. Some of the text in the original report has been removed.
