Citizens Science Fishermen Safety Network

This innovative initiative engages gillnet fishermen as citizen scientists for collecting vital geo-referenced data on gillnet fishing practices, catches and bycatches in exchange for increasing their navigation safety and fuel economy through training and provision of a GPS. These data are being used to develop marine spatial plans that optimize the protection of threatened marine megafauna with local fishing needs.
