How AI Combines with Sustainable Fisheries

So. I tell you what we do about fishery. With the current technology, we would tell you the management method we are using. And I’ll tell you that…
we decide or the law enforcement or the third party decides: how many fish caught? Actually we solve from how many boats? How many fishermen and can do in what season? And we decide how many fish can sell in the quota, but… All of these are good ideas, but… After I tell you about it, you’ll think something doesn’t sounds right, right? I mean you got, say, got 10 tons of fish. You only can only sell for 5 tons. Stuff like this, it doesn’t make sense. So, Now, the artificial intelligence comes into place. With new technology, it seems like… and we can do something different than before, right?
So, the next part, the second part is more like, how does AI combines with sustainable fisheries? how does this affect technology or this industry? I would say.
A lot of projects out there. A lot of researchers a lot of company They spent money, they spent time, they spent resources They are doing artificial intelligent then, a lot of them doing focus on topic. The ocean. And today I will focus on one part, in my opinion is quite interesting. It’s from EU research project is called Horizon 2020. And it actually had 51 projects under the strategy. And this strategy is unlocking the potential of aquatic the living resources. It actually its goal is to manage sustainable developement, and maintain aquautive living resources. Uh, as far as possible from the, I mean Therefore, of course their focus on that European ocean.
But if they can success, I think the experience knowledge could be used in the worldwide and also the inland water received a great social economic benefit in the protector by diversity among them in order to solve problems by catching of fish. This project I’m talking about is Smartfish 2020. It is actually four year plan that was especially in early 2018. So I guess this strategy is what attract me or what I think AI combines with ocean is really important. It is actually two sides
One side is: We want to protect our ocean. The second part that in another hand is We tried to use tecknology. I mean, in the, I think first couple slides, we say 1,000,000 people use fish as major source of protein, right? And we want to keep our human being happy, right? So we want to find a balance between these two points. So this is the technology come here to play. They let us to have the both, clean ocean, wonderful ocean. Every fish is happy. everything of the ocean , in the same time human being is happy and this is interesting project. Let’s start take a look about this project

According to the research, more than 40% of all fishery products for human consumption worldwide are from aquaculture. However, due to the impact of global climate change, global warming has led to more serious problems in the sea.

Aquaculture fishery is mostly dependent on climate. Typhoons, wind and cold, natural disasters can cause aquaculture industry great loss. So, many researchers are devoted to inventing a better environment control system for aquaculture.

For example, if we have an automated control system for water quality, oxygenation, real-time information on animal health, feeding status, environmental health. These can help the manager to prevent fishes from dying because of extreme weather changed. Hence, AI applications can help to avoid the crisis of economic loss.
