CASE STUDY

Using light to protect charismatic species in Indonesia

Collaborators:

Yapeka

Duration:

Aug 2021- Feb 2022

Location

East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Objective:

To develop an affordable solution to reduce interactions between charismatic species and fishing nets

GEAR TYPE:

Beach Seine, Lampara, Gillnet

TARGET SPECIES:

Giant Trevally, Fusilier Fish, Grouper, Octopus, Skipjack Tuna

BYCATCH SPECIES:

Dugong, Turtle, Dolphin

Technology used:

Project Summary:

We’re working in close partnership with Yapeka to implement Precision Fishing in an artisanal fishery. Pisces is being trialled to help fishermen avoid bycatch of dugongs, dolphins, and turtles. Not only does bycatch threaten the populations of these species, but it can also damage fishing gear which is costly for the fishers. Pisces is being trialled on several gear types to assess its ease of use in this context and impact on catches.
