Mō tō mātou rōpū - About the Team
Here in the Digital Monitoring team, we're part of setting the platform for a sustainable and prosperous future, covering two of the three key parts of the Fisheries Change Programme.
Our role in this is information: knowing exactly what fish, non-fish, and protected species are caught in commercial fisheries; and where and when these are being caught.
This includes an electronic catch and position reporting system for all New Zealand commercial fishers, and on-board cameras – to verify these catch reports and monitor fishing activity by commercial fishers, to encourage compliance with the rules.
Some digital monitoring benefits are being realised already. For others, we will work to transition towards new systems and processes that can unlock their full potential.
Be a key part in helping with the role out of the Electronic Monitoring on Vessels – On-Board Camera programme.
We're taking the time to get our on-board camera technology, systems and processes right, so we've started with just a small number of vessels – prioritising commercial fishing with the greatest risk of encountering the critically endangered Māui dolphin.
