Project Overview: Fishing Area Selectivity Tool

Through initial support from NOAA Fisheries’ Northeast Cooperative Research Program (NCRP), the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) worked with the groundfish industry in New England to develop a near real-time spatial/temporal fishing area selectivity tool (FAST). The focus of the FAST project is on the development of a pilot scale web-based portal and mapping tool to enable an industry-led effort outside of the regulatory process to target or avoid species of interest.

The FAST team has recently developed a pilot iPad app that allows fishermen to record catch offline while at sea, and sync their data when back on shore.
