PIRatE Lab's curator insight, January 26, 1:37 PM

We are now experimenting with these ROVs in the context of both undergraduate education and coastal research/monitoring here at CSU Channel Islands.

 

The neat things here are the cheapness of the instrument and the open framework approach.  Our next phase will involve building manipulator arms, etc. with 3D printers.  Following along the open source nature of the project, we will eventually be posting/sharing all our designs/innovations.  Both technical and pedagogical.

AUSTRALIA: Fish ID at your fingertips

AUSTRALIA: Fish ID at your fingertips | Fisheries3point0 | Scoop.it

QUEENSLAND'S fishos can now easily identify their catch and check size and possession limits with the launch of a new fishing app for mobile devices.

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister John McVeigh said Fisheries Queensland had developed the app to assist with species identification and provide the most up-to-date information on fishing rules and regulations.

“The ‘Qld Fishing App’ is an easy to use tool for fishers to help identify their catch and find out size and possession limits,” McVeigh said.

“It also provides information on fishing rules including current closures and links to a number of maps such as fish habitat areas and regulated waters.

“It’s like having a Queensland fishing encyclopaedia in your pocket. This level of information will ensure everyone knows exactly what they can catch, where and when.

“Another handy feature is a personal angler diary, allowing fishers to photograph and record their catch, which can then be uploaded to Facebook.”

Other functions include being able to buy permits online, check weather and tide information, reporting any illegal fishing activities and subscribe to Fisheries catch eNewsletters.

Mr McVeigh said the app demonstrates the Queensland Government’s commitment to developing a one-stop-shop approach to information delivery.

The free Qld Fishing App is now ready for download through Google Play and Apple Store for IOS and Android systems.

Pew Awards Chilean Scientist Stefan Gelcich the 2014 Fellowship in Marine Conservation - The Pew Charitable Trusts

Pew Awards Chilean Scientist Stefan Gelcich the 2014 Fellowship in Marine Conservation - The Pew Charitable Trusts | Fisheries3point0 | Scoop.it
Stefan Gelcich, Ph.D., an assistant professor at the Pontifica Universidad Catolica de Chile has been awarded a 2014 Pew fellowship in marine conservation for a new project that will examine the social and ecological incentives that enable territorial fishing within no-take zones along the Chilean coast. He will explore this mix of marine protected areas and territorial user rights fisheries, known as TURFs, as a strategy for the long-term preservation of ocean resources and sustainability.
Serge @ FARNET.'s insight:

“Creating coastal marine-protected areas along with territorial user rights could be a successful prototype for the long-term preservation of ocean resources and sustainable management of small-scale fisheries.”

“Blue Growth” Is High On Greece’s Agenda

“Blue Growth” Is High On Greece’s Agenda | Fisheries3point0 | Scoop.it
Greek Tourism Minister Olga Kefalogianni gave a speech in Parliament on the power of "Blue Growth," a key driver of tourism development for Greece and other countries of the South within an integrated maritime policy of the European Union.
Serge @ FARNET.'s insight:

One thing is to recognize the economic potential of coastal tourism, another is to give the proper tools and incentives to local communities to fully reap the benefits of it. There is a huge and untapped potential in Greece for local communities and fisheries dependant communities to develop projects that will help them diversify income and sustain their livelihood. Existing and future EU financial instruments, Axis4 of EFF and CLLD of EMFF can make it happen.
