Funded by The Marine Management Organisation (MMO), SafetyNet Technologies’ “Project Fisheye” will fast-forward development of CatchCam, a gear mounted underwater camera for commercial fishing. Already, CatchCam is providing valuable insights into fish behaviour, the effectiveness of bycatch mitigation tools, and how fishing operations could be optimised.
Six trials of CatchCam will be carried out on leading commercial fishing boats in the UK. During these trials, fishing crews will be able to use CatchCam to ensure it is robust enough to withstand the harsh fishing environment. Letting fishers try CatchCam makes sure it is easy to deploy, recover and review footage from.
