OpenSource EM / Chordata / Saltwater

This web site contains links to source code, builds and documentation for a suite of complementary software projects that implement the core functions of an electronic monitoring (EM) platform for commercial fisheries. All of these projects are open source and released under the GPL. Development started in 2016 and has been funded primarily by several National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grants along with contributions from Sea State Inc, Saltwater Inc and Chordata LLC. Initial work on the video analysis components was also funded by United Catcher Boats and the Midwater Trawlers Cooperative. System requirements, design, development and testing were performed by:

Chordata LLC (Stephen Mell, Jubal Skaggs and Eric Torgerson)
Saltwater Inc (Nancy Munro, Kathryn Carovano, Jared Fuller and Morgan Wealti)
Sea State Inc (Karl Haflinger)
Many other individuals and organizations contributed their time and expertise to this project. Saltwater Inc, Sea State Inc, Caitlin Yeager and the Alaska Boat Company provided invaluable assistance with field trials. NMFS staff in both Alaska and Washington helped shape the requirements and design.
