Craig S. Rose
Founder & Principal Scientist
My main career research track has been in fishing gear research and I wandered into EM as a way to efficiently account for commercial-scale catches for studies comparing performance of modified fishing gears. In 2014, that led into work on an EM project for the NMFS Alaska Fisheries Science Center (through the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission) where I have developed camera chutes (imaging enclosures through which fish are slid) to assess fish catches or discards and detection of bycatch species in deliveries of catches to processing plants. Both of these projects focused on the application of automated analysis of imagery through a collaboration with the University of Washington's Information Processing Laboratory.
