Fisheries stakeholders and managers are looking to improve the timeliness, quality, cost effectiveness, and accessibility of fishery-dependent data by integrating innovative technology into monitoring programs. Remote electronic monitoring (REM) has clear potential to meet these challenges by incorporating cameras, gear sensors, and electronic reporting (ER) into fishing operations. ICES provides a forum for exchanging information to share relevant technical applications and policy development to harmonize how data is collected and used for fisheries management and science.
