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
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.
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!
COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR EXISTING FISHING GEAR
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
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.

We work with fishermen to ensure our devices are tailored to their needs
