Community monitoring of fishing 2.0 !
This technological advancement helps in coral reefs conservation. Not only allow these monitorings for the identification of the state of the marine ecosystem, but also the income of these fishers, as well as the effectiveness of marine resource management."Thanks to this technological tool, the collected data will be sent in real time to the WWF team to facilitate decisions on the coral reefs status. At the same time, they are directly transmitted to the Ministry of Fisheries database", says Lalaina Rakotonaivo from WWF. Now, fishers can predict the closure of temporary stocks of octopus according to the stock fished during the year. They will also can know which species of fish are more fished than others and adapt their activity to avoid the drain of fish in their reefs.
