Real-time camera observation in the Danish trawl fishery—technology based intelligent fishery (TEKNOFISK) (39579)

Project Details


The aim of the project is to develop and commercially test an innovative real-time camera system on board Danish trawlers. The system will allow fishermen to observe, evaluate, and if relevant, actively react on information about the fishing process. A reaction could be to terminate the haul or to shift to alternative depth or fishing ground. Through innovative use and combination of existing technology, the project will develop a real-time tool for decision making. The tool will make the trawl fishery a more knowledge based process, where decisions can be made on better grounds.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua and is funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and the Danish Fisheries Agency.
