The Smartfish project, funded by Horizon2020, is having its annual meeting now. It was originally supposed to be in Lorient, France this year – which for Covid-19 reasons was cancelled. It is now on TEAMS, like most of our interactions have been on for the past year. Close to 40 participants attended the first day of presentations. The meeting lasts for two full days (February 16th- 17th 2021). Presentations are made from the results of the last year from the different work packages on fisheries technology, and Covid-19 challenges are identified. Mostly, these result from the inability of testing our technologies at sea because cruises have been cancelled.
