Digitization and advanced tools applied to fisheries, like Electronic Monitoring (EM) or Remote Electronic Monitoring (REM), artificial intelligence, machine and deep learning, data from different sensors or blockchain technologies, have enormous potential to optimize fishing operations, to improve our ability of gathering and analysing fisheries dependant and independent data and to guarantee the sustainability, safety and quality of fish production to satisfy the demands of consumers, stakeholders of the food chain and regulators/policymakers.

The main objective of the of the proposed session is to share the knowledge, expertise and use of digital solutions for extended Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) along the whole fishing value chain (from cradle to gate) and for collection of scientifically and commercially important data in the whole seafood value chains to promote sustainable utilisation of fisheries resources and optimise seafood sourcing.
