Development of Early Warning System, Science based fishing to lower cost and diesel consumption, establish two way communication for capturing observations and feedback.
Partnership approach to take research output to last mile. Also looking at deep sea communication methods.
We have developed an ICT platform for fishermen to help them get the information on Potential Fishing Zone (PFZ), Wind Speed and Direction, Wave height, etc. PFZ helps them to decide the nearest location where they should go for fishing and if the location is not nearby, the fishermen tend to avoid go for the fishing. Hence, with the help of PFZ not only their catch productivity is improving but with the judicious choice of fish trip is helping to reduce the no. of trips without any catch. Hence, it is leading to reduction in the cost of diesel as well as environmental pollution. PFZ compliance is helping to bring this dual benefit. Besides the use of Wind and Wave information is leading to creation of the Early Warning System to avoid the locations where there are danzer zones.
