Connected Fishing Scales

‘If we don’t find an answer to overfishing soon, sea food will run out by 2048.’ ( I designed fishing scales that are able to help reduce overfishing by sharing data between boats in the same fleet.

Overfishing is a huge problem. I believe that internet enabled devices are the answer to helping sustain the global fish population. My connected fishing scales allow for fishing fleet managers to check their boat’s fish stock with the use of NFC and 5G technology. Data on fish stocks and quotas would be available in the cloud, enabling all other boats in the fleet to access the data. Once the fleet’s combined quota is met, all boats will be automatically notified.
