Precision fishing

The fishing industry is going through the same evolution: hardware, software and apps are being developed for use in catching, processing, on-board operations and marketing, which opens up a world of possibilities for fishermen and researchers.

By precision fishing we mean the development and application of innovative techniques and high-tech solutions for fisheries. These should allow for more and better data collection, more selective fishing with less environmental impact, more efficient operation and management of vessels and fishing activities, and better valorization.
