Welcome to the first discussion thread on this new WILDLABS group. To kick things off, we'd like to build on the first in a series of introductory blogs about this new group and hear from anyone working on tech relating to fishing vessels - that could mean digitally-enabled "smart boats", Remote Electronic Monitoring (REM) or the array of new vessel tracking solutions. Key questions we want to bear in mind are:
- What should the fishing vessels of the future look like?
- How can vessel-oriented technology empower fishers and incentivise sustainable practice?
- How can digital vessel enforcement be inclusive as well as effective?
