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 evolution.
EM4Fish is published by Scott Coughlin of Fieldwork Communications. Initially made possible through funding from Environmental Defense Fund, it is currently sustained by the Kingfisher Foundation and National Fish & Wildlife Foundation’s Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program. We are organizationally and technologically neutral, aiming to advance any and all innovations that improve fisheries management.
We invite you to:
