Digital bycatch - A new valuable Resource in Fisheries

OceanBox is an autonomous system for onboard collection and cloud storage of fisheries sensor data. It provides valuable services to private companies that want to improve their efficiency and at the same time promote responsible fishing.

OceanBox’s MISSION is to keep the economic efficiency of conducting scientific research in fisheries as low as possible by outsourcing routine tasks as much as possible. To achieve this mission we have introduced a system for more coherent fishing where both science and industry is invited to play a vital role.

To really understand the dynamics of fish resources, it is vital to make use of fishermen’s data and their knowledge. Especially when multiple vessels operate simultaneously, building up fleet-based information and sharing this across the fleet contributes highly to the observation radius of the fleet as a whole. Not only would the fleet be able to locate the target fish quicker thereby reducing unwanted catches and save on fuel, but the huge amount of data would also contribute to a data-basis that can be used for better fisheries management.

OceanBox promotes responsible fishing by offering its technology to vessels authorised by national authorities to participate in managed fisheries. Using the OceanBox improves fish stock knowledge, contributes to improved management and biomass increase. Providing for enhanced supply of fish through this mechanism contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals of ending hunger (SDG 2) and improving management of life below water (SDG 14).

Data Privacy aspects

We believe that data are valuable assets that should be transformed into valuable insights, algorithms and/or solutions to support data driven business, fact-based decision making and drive innovation. It’s OceanBox mission to build and improve ecosystem and bio-resource management to provide economic value to marine knowledge while respecting privacy and commercial competition code of conduct. Therefore we have implemented clear and transparent policies on Data Governance and Data Privacy that we are happy to share with you.
