In 2010, monitoring costs in the Area A crab fishery had increased to the point of unaffordability. Looking for alternatives, the Area A crab fleet came to us with a challenge:
build a low-cost, high-value electronic monitoring system in time for the next fishing season, just six months away.
Needless to say, we met that challenge.
Since 2011, we’ve been the monitoring service provider for Area A, continuously working with the fleet to improve our systems and respond to their needs.
The 2015 season was no
different. From January to December, our staff were hard at work providing affordable, effective data collection – and lots of it!
