At this year’s American Fisheries Society Meeting in Tampa, Florida (August 20th-24th), we are hosting an all-day session on Monday (21st) titled, Emerging Technologies in Fisheries-Dependent Science and Catch Monitoring.
We are bringing together electronic technology experts, fishery scientists, managers and other stakeholders to examine how advanced technologies can improve future fisheries-dependent data collection. You will hear how remotely collected data (video images, global positioning systems, sensors), machine vision learning, big data, and reporting application technologies, can be used in fisheries science and management. Please note that discounted early registration ends July 8th.
We hope you can join us. Please contact me or a member of our Steering Committee for more information!
