Partnership with WorldFish

Our lab is happy to make an official announcement on our partnership with the WorldFish (https://www.worldfishcenter.org), which leads the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-food Systems of CGIAR Consortium of International Agricultural Research Centers. We will be collaborating in developing new systems to support and analyze small scale fisheries (SSF) on a vast scale, just …

Fisheries data analysis, big data visualization, and applications based on the next generation oceanic information system

The “yellow card” sanction warning from the European Commission (EUC) has brought attention to the Taiwan government in fighting illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Unless further actions are taken, the EUC will issue a “red card” and Taiwan will suffer a loss of 13 million euros yearly for not being able to export marine …

Designing, implementing, and deploying a next generation oceanic information system

Designing, implementing, and deploying a next-generation oceanic information system is a key to future fisheries management. This project focuses on creating such a system, providing a basis for future development. Besides being extensible, stable, and easy to use, this system must also contain the following elements. It must use big data storage technologies, which allows …

Managing and analyzing the voyage data recorder database system

Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) has been used for recording and computing vessel operations since 2007. This VDR device has become an essential basis for fishery policymakers and fishery researchers to make further studies in understanding fishing activities and marine resources in our country. This project contains four objectives as follows. First, importing and cleaning raw …

Implementation and integration of a micro intelligent fisheries activity assistant system

This research project will focus on developing and designing i-Fish prototype, a micro fisheries activity assistant system capable of integrating digital crew declaration systems, emergency distress calls, and trajectory recording. The microdevice used to deploy i-Fish has enough computational powers to achieve the above tasks and can integrate with external modules, i.e., GSM transmitter and …
