Is it possible to have sustainable fisheries? How can technology help fisheries to keep with the EU goals for sustainability and ensure marine environment protection?

Remote electronic monitoring can help achieving just that. 

What gets measured, gets managed. That’s why the widespread application of remote electronic monitoring (REM) will be key to delivering the EU’s Green Deal.

Although the necessary technological solutions already exist or are being developed, regulatory changes and collaboration between scientists, marine and environmental organisations and policymakers will be required to really harness REM.

By initiating and supporting further REM trials across Europe, the EU can help to develop robust technology and legislation that will realise the full potential of REM and maintain a sustainable environment for future generations. This is particularly true in the marine sector, where REM can make fisheries transparent and seafood traceable.
