Seafood production faces major challenges such as conservation of the stocks, climate change and feeding millions of people with essential nutriments such as omega 3. Although technology by itself cannot solve all the problems, it can be a catalytic element for the transformation of fisheries practices and policies. Under a sustainable approach — where we satisfy the needs of the present without compromising the resources of future generations — technological innovations offer an opportunity to improve fisheries management practices and seafood business, while empowering fishers and providing more information to consumers so that they can make more responsible seafood choices. Electronic monitoring systems, computer vision technology, machine learning and other approaches can be used to assure the sustainability of the fisheries. Technology also can help consumers make better decisions regarding what they eat and the impacts of their choices on the environment and on those who participate in its production. In this session we will discuss how the combination of technologies can be used for a sustainable seafood production.
