Published June 29, 2016

The Program at a Glance

 

  • Fishery: Alaska Small Boat / Longline
  • Geographic Scope: Southeast, Southcentral and Southwestern waters of Alaska.
  • EM Program Purpose: Discard estimation from EM video footage, validation of seabird deterrent gear deployment.
  • Pilot Project Implementation: 2014-2017
  • Anticipated Program Implementation: 2018
  • Number of Participating Vessels: Up to 60 in 2016 Pilot; up to 90 in 2017
  • Questions and Challenges:
  • Operations: How to estimate at-sea discards directly from EM video rather than through a logbook audit approach.
  • Operations: How to strategically deploy EM units on a fleet that operates over a wide area and for irregular periods of time to obtain good data
  • Operations: Developing cost effective deployment and data retrieval procedures
  • Confidentiality/record-keeping/archiving: Fishermen have questions about confidentiality,… Read More »

    Innovative Camera Applications for Electronic Monitoring_Wallace, et al., 2015

    Abstract

    Electronic monitoring has been shown to be an effective tool to meet a variety of fisheries monitoring objectives in compliance-based pro­grams. However, these systems have not been effective in delivering individual fish data similar to information collected by an observer.

    Development of new camera-based systems, methods, and tools is critical for collecting scientific data to inform management. A camera system being developed at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center greatly improves the functionality and addresses many of the limitations of electronic monitoring systems. This system provides the ability to automatically collect length measurements in addition to monitoring for compliance. System capacity to identify and automatically capture high quality (HD) stereo images of catch events, for efficient identification of… Read More »
