Our Work

Data Collection Guides and More Information Below

Skipper Science provides a platform for fishermen to share their observations and expertise with scientists and policymakers in order to better inform fisheries management and collaboratively build climate-resilient fisheries. In addition to participating in the general observation reporting program, the app provides opportunities for fishermen to participate in targeted research projects by being able to directly participate in data collection related to specific research priorities.
