We have been at the forefront of initiating and running EM programmes across the UK since this time for government departments (Cefas and MMO).
Implemented properly, EM solutions can offer customers significant cost savings in fisheries monitoring programmes whilst avoiding many of the safety, sampling and logistical issues associated with traditional fisheries observer programmes. Our expertise ranges from sourcing equipment, installation and maintenance, data collection, through to video and sensor data review, data analysis and report production.
SeaScope see the development and utilisation of EM technologies in fisheries as one of the most important innovations of recent years. We are continually investigating how EM technology and monitoring programmes can be improved and adapted to meet future scientific and legislative data collection needs.
Recent technological advancements have allowed Electronic Monitoring (EM) systems incorporating CCTV to be utilised as an accepted fisheries management tool.
