The camera comes with a complete kit that includes a solar charger & a smartphone app (Android & iOS)
Our smartphone app downloads the video from the camera, and then transmits the recorded video and the vessel’s GPS track as soon as the phone is in the range of a cellular network. The video footage and GPS tracks are transmitted to analysts who can provide near-real-time data on bycatch (or lack-thereof) as soon as the phone is within 3G or Wifi range.
This process involving both automatic detection software and manual observation can detect and isolate incidents of by-catch, and therefore declare the fishing operation by-catch free. Information from the review is reported back to the client within 48-72 hours of the video and GPS data transmission.
