In this North Sea Oceanarium, researchers and the industry work to develop future technologies for fisheries in the SmartfishH2020 project. One of the prototypes for the project was recently tested there – ist an ROV that has been fitted with 3D cameras and lasers that enables it to differentiate between fish species and sizes – which will make future fisheries more targeted and sustainable.

“Having visual contact with the robot and the process is unique and it is decisively critical for the quality and the success of the trials – and we are giving special opportunities to develop future technologies for the fishing sector – and society in general”, says Project Coordinator Bent Herrmann.
