In our quest to make sure that there’s always plenty more fish in the sea, we’re supporting a new start-up, SafetyNet Technologies in their quest to make the fishing industry more sustainable by reducing by-catch.
The award winning SafetyNet Technologies is set to disrupt the fishing industry with its ground-breaking technology which uses lights to attract and repel fish, thus eliminating by-catch by up to 90%. This patented piece of technology which the team call PISCES will take fishing to new dimensions and the team hope will have huge potential to make the fishing industry more sustainable.
Imagine a fisherman only catching the fish he is able to sell. Not catching the wrong type, or fish that are too small. Not having to throw his bycatch overboard or discard of them on land. It sounds like a far-off dream but according to the team behind PISCES, the reality is much closer to home. What makes their technology even more attractive is that within just one day, a fishermen can make their money back due to the extra fish they can now sell.
You can back their crowd-funnding campaign and claim your reward (£25 will get you a £25 voucher) between May 16 and June 23rd. The link to the crowdfunding page is: https://igg.me/at/PISCES
