Blue Ocean Gear: Real time tracking and monitoring for deployed fishing gear
Real time tracking and monitoring for deployed fishing gear
Blue Ocean Gear’s intelligent, connected buoys monitor the location and movement of any type of deployed fishing gear along with local conditions. The technology helps fishers, scientists, fisheries managers and other fishing technology companies track and monitor their valuable gear and equipment when it’s in the ocean. This allows users to find their gear faster, identify problems early and gain new insight into their operations while improving efficiency.
