From the executive summary:
The Working Group on Technology Integration for Fishery-Dependent Data (WGTIFD) examines electronic technologies and applications developed to support fisheries-dependent data collection, both on shore and at sea, including electronic reporting (ER), electronic monitoring (EM), positional data systems, and observer data collection. The primary objective of this report is to inventory and review the various hardware, software applications, and approaches to fisheries-dependent data collection. The report identifies the challenges and successes of electronic technology programmes worldwide; reviews the technical, policy, and analytical considerations for utilizing data from electronic technologies; and reports on the developments in machine learning and computer vision technologies and their applications in fisheries dependent data collection. WGTIFD also started to examine the risks and benefits of different technologies and how to integrate data from technologies; these topics will be examined further by the working group in the next year.
