And the impact. The SMARTFISH 2020 will actually um… has so many impacts. But which give you some ideas. One is we can improve the catch efficiency. We can have a catch composition and catch quality And a demersal fishery and we… Second, we can improve the accuracy and quantity of fish dot assessment data. Um..And third one, we can reduce unintended fish mortality and capture the protective species. And first one is we can reduce fishing pressures and environmental impact of fishery. And the 5th one is advanced the monitoring and their compilers of fishery regulations. And the sixth one is ensure that data collected on board fishing vessel can be used quickly and efficiently for fisheries monitoring management and um…assessment purpose.
OK.This is just a very quick review. How is this impact right? Remember the all impact as Remember the previous slide;The machine vision;The AI algorithm What they can do is they can catch the image right away real-time And then can send the data back. And how does this work? Again, They can improve the accuracy. They can decide if this is a good batch. We don’t want something because we know…I mean in the first slide. We said more than 60% of fish need to be protected. We don’t want. I mean we don’t want. And I believe the fisherman or fish company they don’t want to get the unintended fishes or they don’t want to catch the protected species.
They don’t want it, they just want their target species. In all time, nothing they can do about it. They can put the net on. But now they have a very powerful tool, machine vision with AI system. They can decide this is good or bad or this is good location. A lot of possibility, a lot of technology can be developed with the AI system. in place for the fishery. OK. And another thing is the data collected on board fishing vessel. We can use it quickly. We can send it back right away. Then they can do whatever they need to adjust. Now the captain out there can have more information. The big boats on land can have more information to make everything…
It’s not like a far away is unreachable if anything is possible. At this point, with the technology. I think this is truly amazing technology.

Prof. Wu has already introduced SMARTFISH project.

The goal of the project is to develop a high-tech system that, through automated data collection, can optimize fishing efficiency and reduce the impact of pollution; it will also provide fishermen with fisheries regulations.

The University of East Anglia School of Computing Sciences team, as part of the SMARTFISH project, will focus on developing technologies related to image processing. They will use machine learning to analyze images captured by CCTV and handheld devices to help improve fishermen’s fishing efficiency. Also, the research can help provide new fishery resource data to avoid fishing pressure and further ecological damage and therefore, achieve the goal of better fisheries resource management.

The impact of the Project can have great potential.

  • Improve catch efficiency and catch quality.
  • Improve the accuracy and quantity of fish stock assessment data.
  • Reduce unintended fishing mortality and the capture of protected species.
  • Reduce the environmental impact of fisheries.
  • Advance the monitoring and compliance of fishery regulations
  • Ensure that collected data can be used quickly and efficiently for fisheries monitoring, management and assessment purposes.

The development of sustainable and environmentally friendly fisheries through smart technology will provide a good aquaculture environment behind the global economy and promote innovation in the marine industry.
