The main objective of LIFE iSEAS project is to demonstrate that a sustainable scenario (in terms of biological and socio-economic indicators) of the EU fisheries is possible through the enhancement of the real application on the fishing sector of existent knowledge and innovative solutions for discards reduction and management.
This project contributes directly for the purposes of achieving the objective of European Environment Agency and the European Environment Information and Observation Network to record and collate data on the state of the environment, to Agency draw up expert reports on the quality, sensitivity and pressures on the environment within the territory of the Community.
Some of the main expected results of technologies applied in LIFE iSEAS are:
The iObserver, a system able to perform the work of a human observer on-board automatically capturing, identifying and clasifying all fishing data. This system will improve the quality and availability of data and knowledge about the status of resources.
A data and metadata model and complete range of OGC services (WMS, WFS, WCS, WPS, CSW) for acquired discards information integrable on a fish discards SDI, satisfying INSPIRE Directive and providing fishing discards data to Marine SDI.
A powerful modelling tool to analyze the spatio-temporal conditions of considered fishing areas in terms of discards/stock status. This collated information (from commercial fishing trips, shipowners interviews and oceanographic research surveys) will be the core to develop quasi real-time, effective policies based on daily-activity data.
