The NEMO System:
The All-in-One Solution for Monitoring and Securing Small-Scale Fisheries
“I want to be able to have one year without a fishing accident.”
ABDOULAYE SECK, Local Council for Artisanal Fishing in Dakar, Senegal
Knowledge is Power.
Small-scale fisheries are critical to coastal economies and food security. In addition, they account for more than half of all fish caught globally and employ the majority of fisheries workers. As a result, artisanal fisheries are now a major international priority. The FAO’s Small-Scale Fisheries Guidelines seek to protect these communities and their livelihoods.
Yet today, SSF vessels are not tracked, risking fishermen’s lives as they search for fish farther from the coast. To solve this problem, CLS has created the NEMO beacon: a hybrid, satellite/mobile tracker with global connectivity, so fishermen are never out of reach.
But a beacon alone or simple GPS is not enough—we also need to map traditional fishing grounds with better accuracy. The challenge is huge: there are tens of thousands of SSF vessels, so real-time monitoring will produce massive amounts of data. To make sure that information is manageable and reliable, CLS has developed a unique SSF Fisheries Monitoring Center using Big Data analytics.
The NEMO system has been specifically designed to help you manage small-scale fishing and encourage support from fishing communities. Together, we can work to protect your traditional industry and marine resources for the future.
