Maybe it is more of a mind-set? • ICES WKEVUT 2022 – Workshop to Evaluate the Utility of Industry-derived data for enhancing scientific knowledge and providing data for stock assessments – Many examples on self-sampling and collaboration between science and industry: pelagic, demersal, small-scale. [...] Design, development and deployment of a software platform for real-time reporting in the west of Scotland demersal fleet. [...] Design, development and deployment of a software platform for real-time reporting in the west of Scotland demersal fleet.
