Fisheries Data Integration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Co-Chairs: Jordan Watson / Karen Sender
Location: Emerald 1
Integrating catch information with marine environmental data helps explain why vessels traveled to certain locations. Recent data accessibility improvements open the potential for near real-time fisheries management and to understanding responses to a changing climate. Presentations on data integration in other domains are also welcome, to promote learning and best practices.
Presentations (abstracts in this Google doc):
1. Todd Hay: Boatnet - An Integrated Fishery Dependent and Independent Field Data Collection System
2. Diana Ma: Mining NMFS Data to Increase Echosounder Capabilities
3. Blake Feist: Using remote sensed vessel monitoring data to model spatio-temporal patterns of fishing activity
4. Steve Lewis: Improving the spatial resolution of fisheries catch data with Kalman Filters and Machine Learning
5. Taiki Sakai: Putting passive acoustic data to work: Developing a standardized, open-source approach to automated analysis and archival of passive acoustic data
6. Jordan Watson: Integrating environmental and fishery data to capture fish and fishery dynamics
