“Overfishing is an increasing threat to ocean life. If we do not do anything about it, we will drift towards a dark future.
Our concept is based on the UN Development Goal 14 “Life below water”, which aims to protect marine life and face societal needs in this context. The UN Goals aim for a more sustainable world by 2030. In the CBI A3 Challenge Based Innovation Program, we meet those UN Sustainable Development Goals with the support of CERN technology.
ReMY is a concept to avert such a future. A Supervision, Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) is interconnected with drones and buoys all over the ocean. The system is based on CERN technologies and able to track and monitor life below water. ReMY enables us to save endangered species, boost science and research and push fishing industry towards sustainable methods.”, Team Quata summarises their project work.
The solution impacts society in a number of ways:
- Environment. With more marine data people are more able to protect the ocean life and everything that connects to it.
- Fishing Industry. Solution will make the industry to move towards sustainable ways of fishing.
- Research. The data there is the more research and new findings can be done.
- Politics. When government and lawmakers have real life data of oceans welfare they can make more sustained actions and e.g controlling over fishing laws becomes more easier and fairer.
