Introducing RISE, a Roadmap to Improve Seafood Ethics
Speaker: Gib Brogan, Northeast director, Oceana
Moderator: Sean Murphy, Editor, Seafood Source
Duration: 55 minutes
Small-scale fisheries account for 95 percent of the world’s fishing fleet, but currently suffer from inadequate monitoring. Silicon Valley-based Pelagic Data Systems (PDS) has created a lightweight monitoring system for small vessels that can be used to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and the exploitation of global fish stocks. Join PDS CEO Dave Solomon and the company’s chief scientific officer, Melissa Garren, as well as Jack Whalen of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, as they detail the current state of fisheries monitoring, what today’s technology can do to deter IUU fishing, and how technology is being used to fill data gaps at sea.
