Océane Boulais

TransparenSea is an AI system that uses video from tuna longline vessels as input to identify dangerous fishing practices while at sea.

  • Commercial fishing remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the nation, with a fatality rate that is 23 times higher than for all other workers. 
  • In order to increase awareness of safe fishing practices on vessels at sea, unsafe fishing practices that are generated out of habit must first be identified.
