Catalyzing the Growth of Electronic Monitoring in Fisheries

Publishers: CEA Consulting, Nature Conservancy

Language: English

In 2018, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and CEA Consulting (CEA) released the report, "Catalyzing the Growth of Electronic Monitoring in Fisheries." The report highlighted that many of the world's fisheries lack accurate data about what is happening on the water. Even in fisheries with human observers, low coverage rates, basic human limitations that prevent viewing everything happening onboard, and even threats and bribery can limit data quality. This progress update report revisits the original recommendations, assesses the progress and new innovations that have been made, identifies key remaining barriers, and updates the investment blueprint based on what has changed or been learned over the last year and a half.
