Smart Seafood Harvesting
Fish Cleaner, Reduce Bycatch
Commercial fishing is under pressure due to compliance regulations, changing climateand increased demand to feed the world’s population. For generations, fishermen have cast their nets, having a good idea but without knowing for sure what they will catch until the nets are hauled back on deck. Fishermen are losing revenue because of bycatch and experiencing steep government fines for hauling in out of season species.
SmartCatch’s solutions make fishing more profitable because they help fishermen reduce bycatch, avoid fines for catching out-of-season or endangered species and lessen the risk of triggering early fisheries closure from large amounts of unintended catches. SmartCatch technologies essentially give fishermen both eyes and hands inside of their trawl-nets.
Even a 2% bycatch reduction pays for this technology in one season.
Eliminate need to do test tows, saving fuel and operational costs.
Avoid potential fines incurred by catching too many “choke species”
