We are a Designated service provider in Canada and have years of experience in delivering high quality electronic monitoring, at-sea and dockside Observer monitoring, and Observer training programs. Fisheries monitoring may seem like a strange thing for a charity to pursue, but we have already seen the invigorating effect of our work on the industry and local communities:
- Our Observer and electronic monitoring alternatives have introduced low-cost competition, revitalizing the industry.
- Lower monitoring costs have meant that more small boats can stay on the water, bringing added employment and income to local communities.
- High-quality fisheries data have supported DFO’s fisheries management and stewardship goals.
- Data sharing with fishermen has supported their advocacy and direct participation in fisheries management.
