Innovation for Sustainable Fisheries

SMARTFISH H2020 is an international research project which aims to develop, test and promote a suite of high-tech systems for the EU fishing sector. The goal is to optimize resource efficiency, improve automatic data collection for fish stock assessment, provide evidence of compliance with fishery regulations and reduce the ecological impact of the industry.

Generating accurate catch data efficiently is a key challenge in assessing levels of compliance and monitoring and successful implementation of the landing obligation. Data collection systems developed in @SmartfishH2020 , when implemented at an EU level for fisheries, will improve compliance with fisheries regulations, reduce costs of fisheries monitoring (because of automation of monitoring through data systems), and provide data for management purposes (e.g. stock assessments and quota distributions).
