FishingROV a project to develop a new sustainable fishing method.

About this event

FishingROV a project to develop a new sustainable fishing method. Selectively fishing for the target species, eliminating by-catch while minimizing damage to the seabed. It’s capable of individually catching scallops from the sea bed; reducing our dependence on scallop dredging and avoiding the damage to the sea bed associated with dredging. Catches other food species without any by-catch, dredge or trawl damage. Brings moreawareness to the sea floor and kindles an appreciation for a place few people visit. Provides a sustainable and distributed employment for local costal workers. I also hope it will be useful in controlling the Lion Fish population explosion currently unbalancing the ecosystems of Bermuda and the east coast of America. It could also potentially fish in waters too deep to be easily accessed by divers 100m+. I love the idea that anyone could build a FishingROV and try to develop the design to make self build easier. The idea is to use off the shelf components as much as possible and think of where 3D printing and other low cost CAM could be employed to maintain affordability. The project will be Open Source, with all plans, code, ideas and research available for free. Also I would like to invite feedback/ideas from anyone with an interest, to speed the development and track implemented ideas.
