[NEWS] Our Oceans are in Crisis. Here’s How Technology Could Save Them

在聯合國可持續發展目標(SDGs)中,各國政府已就一項雄心勃勃的全球議程達成一致,以應對這一危機。可持續發展目標14制定了一系列廣泛的目標,以更好地管理海洋資源 – 包括更好地管理大小漁業;保護重要的海洋資源;和小島嶼發展中國家(小島嶼發展中國家)的可持續發展。成功需要政府,社區,公司和公民社會的大膽行動。掌握第四次工業革命的力量將是至關重要的。

新技術可以幫助政府更好地管理他們的漁業。遠洋無人機可以一次巡航大海一年,為評估魚類資源和巡邏偏遠地區提供具有成本效益的解決方案。實時報告允許捕魚的動態管理,以減少受保護物種的兼捕。面部識別技術甚至可以用來自動跟踪捕捉 – 識別每條魚落到船上時的情況。

In the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), governments have agreed on an ambitious global agenda to address this crisis. SDG 14 sets out a wide-ranging set of targets for better stewardship of ocean resources – including better management of fisheries, large and small; protection of key marine resources; and sustainable development for the Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Success will require bold action by governments, communities, companies and civil society. Harnessing the power of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will be essential.

New technologies can help governments better manage their fisheries. Ocean-going drones can cruise the ocean for a year at a time, offering a cost-effective solution for assessing fish stocks and patrolling remote areas. Real-time reporting allows dynamic management of fishing to reduce bycatch of protected species. Facial recognition technology can even be used to automate the tracking of catch – identifying every fish as it lands on the boat.
