The system was also used in 2016 to estimate loss of earnings and allocate reparations to fishermen after an oil spill. “This year, the device has been rather helpful in assessing fishery conditions and for offshore wind power farms—trying to find a balance between the environmental protection, fishing ground, and power industries,” said William Hsu, associate professor at the National Taiwan Ocean University, which helped with the project. To alleviate privacy concerns, the government gave assurances that the data would be kept private unless ordered by a court and instigated fuel subsidies as an incentive for users. In South Africa, the Abalobi app for small fisheries was launched about five years ago and enables users to log catches, record fish sales, capture daily expenses, find buyers and see the latest fishing regulations and notices.

Simon Funge-Smith, senior fishery officer at the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in the Asia-Pacific, said while many technologies can be useful for advocacy groups, fishers’ groups and researchers, their benefits to small-scale fishers are limited. Language, limited coverage of phone networks, and data requirements, can hold back many technologies, he said. Apps that track locations and fish catches using less time-consuming and simple entries, or help users comply with rules and laws, are more likely to succeed in empowering small-scale fishermen, he said. Mobile phones and online banking apps have “transformed” fishing and “lubricated the entire trading arrangement of what is a very perishable product”, Funge-Smith said.
The threat of data collected by digital tools being misused—like for taxation—is not huge, he said, adding that this would discourage its use or cause its misuse. Ohi Masuda has been a geoduck and scallops fisherman for more than a decade near Baja California, Mexico, maintaining a family tradition that began when his ancestors came to Mexico from Japan in the 1950s. Masuda has to cope with rising sea temperatures impacting the types of fish he can catch, and the need of cool water for the processing of fish before being shipped to Asia. “It could help us to innovate,” he said about the SSF Hub, while conceding that limited internet connection could hinder access for some fishermen. “In Mexico, we often believe that we need to concentrate our efforts only on catching enough fish to sustain a fishery without investing in post-harvest processes, transportation, added value, management, or distribution.” (Reporting by Michael Taylor; Editing by Belinda Goldsmith; Credit: Thomson Reuters Foundation)
