PESCAPUERTA took part in the meeting held on 30 July in Vigo, to mark the Opening Day of the III Edition of Fishing Tech. The event saw discussions between representatives from Switzerland, Norway, Cyprus, Denmark, France, the United States, the United Kingdom and Spain. The participants put forward solutions for cooling systems, a camera for filming the catch, solutions for improving on-board telecommunications and compacting, crew management, software for optimising fishing and even an un-manned submarine vehicle set to revolutionise trawling.

Following the meetings held yesterday between members and technology firms, it is hoped that results will soon be available that demonstrate, once again, that open innovation and collaboration between companies is the key to progress in a sector as seemingly traditional as fishing.
