  • The North Pacific Fisheries Association (NPFA), a fishermen’s organization, and Saltwater Inc., an observer and EM service provider, received funding in 2016 from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to implement electronic monitoring (EM) in Alaska’s pot cod fishery.

    The project highlights skipper engagement, integration of observers into the EM program, cross training of skilled EM personnel, a streamlined feedback loop between vessels and data, and local data review. A progress report, Implementing EM For Alaska’s Pot Cod Fleet, details key aspects of the program and is available at the link below.
