The field of fisheries management is undergoing fundamental change as emerging technologies enable new methods for acquiring, sharing, analyzing, and utilizing data. EM4Fish is a knowledge base and community of practice for the people driving this change.
Initially made possible through funding from Environmental Defense Fund, our continuing work is sustained by Kingfisher Foundation, National Fish & Wildlife Foundation’s Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program, and Net Gains Alliance.
