Projected Cost of Providing Electronic Monitoring to 100 Vessels in the New England Groundfish Fishery

Chris McGuire

Published April 15, 2019

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has issued a report to the New England Fisheries Management Council that estimates the expected costs for installing and operating EM systems on one hundred groundfish vessels for three years. Using data from the fishing year 2017 groundfish EM program, TNC contracted with CapLog Group LLC to develop the report’s detailed projections, meant to inform the Council, federal policymakers and other stakeholders as broader roll-out of EM is considered in New England.

We welcome your questions and comments about this report. Please provide those as comments in the box below, or email the TNC staff directly at geoffrey_smith@tnc.org and cmcguire@tnc.org .

New England Electronic Monitoring Project Phase III, April 2015 (PDF)

The goal of the New England Electronic Monitoring (EM) Project was to investigate the potential for using EM within the broader Northeast Multispecies Fishery (NE groundfish fishery) catch monitoring program. EM systems are designed for the automated collection of fisheries data while vessels are at sea. They collect high-frequency sensor data and closed-circuit television (CCTV) imagery during fishing or related activities which are then reviewed post-trip to provide data needed for fisheries management, compliance, and/or science.

Phases I and II of the project were completed and documented in 2010-2013 (Pria et. al., 2011, 2012) and laid the initial groundwork for understanding how EM could best be applied in the monitoring needs of the NE groundfish fishery. These results… Read More »
