Underwater lights that fit to your fishing gear with a science-based service to reduce bycatch of unwanted species. Saving more fish, helping fishermen, and protecting an increasingly essential food source now and for the future.

Reduce your bycatch by up to 90%

Working in collaboration with fishermen

OVERVIEW:

PISCES is a kit of lights that you attach to your fishing gear. Our deployments in different fisheries around the world have demonstrated that the use of light in fishing can repel or attract different marine species. PISCES illuminates your net underwater with one of six different colours of light that you can select, according to your target catch species, and which bycatch species you wish to avoid.

It is easy to fit, recharge and is designed specifically for the fishing environment. It retrofits to many types of fishing gear enabling them to comply with new fishing regulations that reward the use of sustainable gears. We provide a science-based service alongside our technology, consulting on the best way to implement and customise Pisces within your fishing operation. Our service is provided at a subscription based model to better fit your cash flow needs.

SafetyNet Technologies enabled fishers and scientists to work together and test new devices that could have a major impact on one of the global oceans’ largest environmental problems, unwanted bycatch in fisheries. Their generous approach unlocked innovators in the industry to test the equipment with input from my team and resulted in a scientifically peer reviewed publication which showed the potential of using light to manipulate fish behaviour and reduce bycatch

It’s been very pleasant working with the SafetyNet Technologies team because what we wanted to achieve was a balance between the viability of the industry, protection of fish stocks and compliance with EU regulations.

We used PISCES to investigate how fish behaviour can be altered to enhance catch separation in a divided trawl cod end.

The FTL-FISH project ended up as a true success story. …Congratulations to you all and long life to Pisces!

We used PISCES lights as an important part of our method to enable fishermen to change the selective properties of their gear and reduce unwanted catch in a Nephrops trawl.

COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR EXISTING FISHING GEAR 

Gill Net
Fishing Pot
Trawl Net

PISCES is designed to work with many types of gears, including gill and drift nets, pots and traps, as well as trawls. We’re currently also trialing our devices on purse seine and pole and line fishing.

PROVEN RESULTS WITH DIFFERENT MARINE ANIMALS

Selection Of Fish Illustration

Different species of fish are affected by lights in different ways. Some are attracted and some are repelled, and it all depends on the type of light you use.

Here are some of the species we’ve seen successful results with, but we are constantly building on this list with new species we are trialling.
