Project Goal

The main goal of the project is to increase the profits of fishermen by commercializing the results of the research-implementation project (accomplished by “first production”) implemented by R&D institutions and enterprises. The subject of the project is the construction of the Knowledge Transfer Platform – FindFISH based on in-situ research, environmental data and quantitative and qualitative fishing data as well as numerical modelling of hydrodynamic, physicochemical and biological parameters of the Gulf of Gdansk. The FindFISH platform is a database containing historical data and current, online forecasts on the marine environment and living resources of the Gulf of Gdansk. It was created by means of knowledge transfer between two groups of users: scientists and fishermen. The FindFISH platform will provide forecasts on the conditions of the marine environment of the Gulf of Gdansk and the locations of fish caught industrially, utilising computational model created on the basis of in situ data acquired during fishing expeditions, provided to the system by fishermen and numerical data provided by scientists. FindFISH is a service built for ZRM-OP that will make it available to a wide range of interested parties.
