Sustainable tuna fisheries through advanced earth observation technologies

Project description

SUSTUNTECH - Using advanced Earth observation tools to promote sustainable tuna fishing

The EU requires fishing to be environmentally friendly, economically viable and socially sustainable to provide long-term European food security. Current fisheries operations are based on the individual operation of ships, leading to great exploitation inefficiencies. The full potential for efficiency improvement has yet to be explored. The EU-funded SUSTUNTECH project's approach of high value products using Copernicus data and services can result in fuel and cost savings of 20 % to 25 % per fisheries fleet. The project will produce commercialised tools using the combined capabilities of the members of the consortium. Using Big Data approaches in daily operations of tuna fishing vessels, SUSTUNTECH will generate added value to the environmental data services provided by Copernicus and provide data feedback that can increase data supply and services improvement.
