Ocean data collection in collaboration with fishing vessels offers an opportunity for cost-effective hydrographic data collection in the data coverage gaps of coastal and shelf-seas. Furthermore, this data is beneficial not just for oceanography, but also for fishing industry and fisheries science.
There are a variety of programs collecting ocean data with fishing vessel, involving both scientists and fishing industry. Until now, there has been minimal communication between programs, leading to the re-invention of
technology, disparate data standards, and poor visibility to the broader community of ocean data aggregators and users.
