At-Sea Data Entry System for Salmon Fisheries — The last mile?

Collection of data by fishermen at sea offers an efficient and cost effective way to provide detailed, timely information to scientists and managers. This proposal is to leverage our experience with SeaTab and subsequent development projects to create an at-sea data entry system using the Earl tablet and test it at sea. If successful this could put the finishing touch on our 2012 efforts to produce an operational data entry system for small boats.
