2015/2016 Annual Report:
Grantee Rob Terry, founder of SmartCatch, received a LEX-NG Fund grant to address the problem of too many unwanted fish caught in nets. The World Bank estimates that $50 billion of fish stocks—the equivalent of 27 million tons of fish—are wasted each year. SmartCatch is putting video cameras inside nets so fishermen can see if they are capturing unwanted species before they haul up their catch. These cameras will help save millions of fish from wasteful destruction. With improved precision, this innovative technology will result in more efficient and sustainable fishing.
