iFish: Implementation and integration of a micro intelligent fisheries activity assistant system

Goal: This research project will focus on developing and designing i-Fish prototype, a micro fisheries activity assistant system capable of integrating digital crew declaration system, emergency distress calls, and trajectory recording. The microdevice used to deploy i-Fish has enough computational powers to achieve the above tasks and can integrate with external modules, i.e., GSM transmitter and receivers, GPS receivers, and external storages. Microdevices require much less energy than regular computers and can be activated using mobile power banks, which makes it suitable to carry on fishing rafts and sampans which do not have a stable source of electric power. Development of the software will also take account of using operations that consume less power to lengthen the operation time of i-Fish. The development of the current stage will use 4G mobile network to relay information and will be field tested by going outside and on to the seas. To support i-Fish, a central data processing unit will be established to receive, store, process, and integrate the data sent by i-Fish with the fisheries data center. Finally, research and experiments will be done to evaluate the capability of i-Fish integrating with the AIS system.

This paper will focus on developing and designing a portable fisheries assistant system (FAS), a micro fisheries activity assistant system which integrates operation zone detections, i.e., marine protected zones and closed fishing season areas, online digital crew declaration system, emergency distress calls, and trajectory recording. FAS combines external modules, i.e., GSM transmitter and receivers, GPS receivers, and external storage, and uses microdevices which is light and can be powered by a battery bank. This makes FAS suitable as a carry-on device for fishing rafts and sampans which do not have a stable source of electric power. Development of the software will also take account of using operations that consume less electricity to lengthen the operation time of FAS. The current development stage uses mobile network systems to relay information and is field-tested by going on the seas. Finally, research and experiments will be done to evaluate the capability of FAS integrated with a current existing central control system at the Fisheries Agency of Taiwan.

The development of the current stage will use 4G mobile network to relay information and will be field tested by going outside and on to the seas. To support the system, a control center will be established to receive, store, process, and integrate the data sent by the assistant system for further processing.
