      Pacific Coast Individual Fishing Quota (IFQ) Computational Vision-Based Monitoring (CVM) 

      Colby Brady NOAA Fisheries, West Coast Region, Seattle The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), West Coast Region (WCR) is exploring Computational Vision-Based Monitoring (CVM) in the IFQ groundfish trawl fishery. The goal of the research is see if CVM can reduce monitoring costs while providing better and more timely data as compared to current (1) electronic monitoring/reporting (EM, ER) hardware; (2) speciation methodologies, and; (3) logistical issues with periodic collecting and replacing of hard drives in the field. This project is done in collaboration with Gen
