Background:
Ecotrust Canada is the service provider for the Area A Crab fleet’s electronic monitoring (EM) and biological sampling programs. In addition, we run a number of innovative monitoring pilot programs through our Marine Monitoring Initiative, and provide support to fishermen and community organizations through our charitable programs.
2018 will be our seventh year of delivering EM programs in Area A and our sixth year delivering biological sampling programs. Our approach is to provide an EM system comprised of software and hardware components that are affordable and effective. Key components of these programs are to work in collaboration with the Area A Crab Association, individual licence holders and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to collect and deliver high quality and timely data.
Through a partnership with the North Coast Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society, Ecotrust Canada has installed an electronic monitoring (EM) system at the MK Bay Marina in Kitimat, BC. This system is collecting video footage of the boat launch, fuel dock and outer edge of the marina in order to capture daily data on number of recreational vessels coming and going. This project is a pilot to determine if this type of EM data can be used to complement the recreational fisheries data being collected by the Department of Fisheries via fly-overs and creel surveys.
Ecotrust Canada is an enterprising non-profit organization that supports initiatives resulting in improved livelihoods and environmental and community conditions. Our fisheries team has many years of direct experience in commercial fisheries and fishery monitoring programs.
