Abstract:

This partnership will work toward building full cooperation among the commercial fish harvesting community, federal and state coastal resource managers, private industry, and the ocean research community for the collection, distribution, analysis, and assimilation of environmental data collected by commercial fishing vessels. Objective 1 To develop a collaboration between commercial fishermen, private marine industries, oceanographers, and coastal resource managers for the collection, real-time telemetry, analysis, assimilation, distribution, and use of environmental and fisheries data from coastal regions off the northeastern US. Objective 2 To design and produce an integrated sensor system including navigational, hydrographic, and meteorological components for use onboard commercial fishing vessels to assemble, integrate, and test prototype versions of the system on a small number of vessels and to establish land-based centers for collection, analysis and assimilation of data. Objective 3 To demonstrate system feasibility and function by means of sea trials involving one- to three-day trips by two commercial fishing vessels in Gloucester, MA and Portland, ME.
