Short description:

The objective of the WP3 Fishery Pilot is to demonstrate how Big Data can boost the fishery sector. The Fishery Pilot focus is on two separate types of fisheries in two countries: Oceanic Tuna fisheries in Spain and small Pelagic fisheries in Norway (13 million tons annual capture). Six separate pilot cases have been defined, addressing key concerns such as the cost of fuel and vessel maintenance as well as overfishing and fisheries planning. Therefore, the pilots cover three separate viewpoints: Immediate operational choices (in each vessel during their operations), fishing vessel trip and fisheries planning (general vessel trips planning), and fisheries sustainability and value (longer-term planning). End users have been actively participating and giving feedback during the 36 months of the project with presence from the beginning in the project kick-off meeting. Six fishing companies are involved in the project to test the framework and give feedback for the most useful implementation. The fault detection and energy efficiency tasks have been developed for onboard and shore applications with fishing company machinery surveyors. End users from the fishing industry have advised about which data integration and visualization are most useful for operations planning. Several fishing vessel owners have provided feedback about the project objectives and how it can benefit them. Other end users are national and international organizations interested in fisheries sustainably. There have been several opportunities to show the project progress and receive feedback from these organizations which include regional fisheries associations, ICES fisheries experts, FAO stakeholder meetings, and EFARO fisheries organizations. Tuna oceanic pilots have achieved the installation of vessel fuel consumption monitoring systems together with end-users and the Big Data cluster for data storage, integration, processing, and visualization in AZTI facilities. Echebastar fleet has achieved during the project over 30% fuel consumption on average across five fishing vessels.
