Seafood Harvesters of America has teamed up with industry partners, NOAA scientists and researchers, and Conservation X Labs researchers to develop a survey to help identify technology needs in the commercial fishing industry. The purpose of this survey is to determine the highest priority conservation technology needs for commercial fishermen across the nation. Commercial fishing can benefit from the advances in technology that have been observed in other industries over the last decades, and many of these technologies can be applied in innovative ways to increase sustainability, efficiency, and safety in commercial fisheries.
Fishermen and those who directly work in the fishing industry are able to take this survey. Few responses have been gathered from the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, Western Pacific, and New England regions — fishermen in these areas are strongly encouraged to provide input.
