Maritime technological solutions
Technology for sustainable fishing
Devocean develops innovative technological solutions for ropeless fishing that offer an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fishing equipment. Our systems allow the rehabilitation of certain lucrative fishing areas of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, including those where marine mammals in critical danger of extinction, such as right whales, circulate.
Did you know?
CRITICAL DANGER OF RIGHT WHALE EXTINCTION
Right whales face a labyrinth of 80,000 vertical ropes used for crab fishing in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Since 2017, 30 whales have died in Canadian waters.
DOZENS OF LUCRATIVE FISHING AREAS ARE CLOSED
Faced with international pressure which threatens to boycott the country’s fishing products, Canada must apply measures to protect marine fauna; a dynamic closure of nearly 75% of the lucrative zone. Almost every day, a new closure is announced by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
EASTERN CANADA’S COASTAL ECONOMY IS UNDER PRESSURE
The few fishing areas still open are now overexploited. Crab fishermen have to increase trips and expenses without being able to meet their quota. This equates to losses of around $ 350,000 per year. For all captains of the Canadian Atlantic, losses are estimated between $ 50 million and $ 150 million.
