Target species: Cod
Period: 2008 – 2009
Number of vessels in the program: 6
Geographic scope of the program: North Sea
Equipment employed in the EM / ER:
The EM system used in the trial was developed by Archipelago Marine Research Ltd, Canada. It consisted of sensor, imagery, and control units (McElderry et al., 2003; Ames et al., 2007). The imagery unit had up to four waterproof armoured-dome closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. During all catch events, it recorded overhead views of the working deck and catch- handling areas, and closer views of the discard chutes. The sensor units included a hydraulic pressure sensor, a photoelectric sensor to detect winch-drum rotation, and an independent Global Positioning System (GPS). The last recorded the geographic position along with the vessel name, date, and time of all activities. The sensors and cameras were connected to a control box located in the wheelhouse.
Goals of the program:
- Establish if REM can supply the sufficient documentation for a CQM.
- Discuss implementation of CQM, in regards to new technologies
