Taiwan has a thriving offshore fishing industry, boasting the second-largest fleet of fishing vessels in the world. However, the industry is a demanding one and the identification of fishing locations still heavily depends on conventional labor and experience. This reliance poses a significant challenge in terms of knowledge transfer. To address these challenges, industry players have merged AI and unmanned drones to introduce the world’s first fish population assessment technology. This integration has transformed drones into the vigilant “eyes in the sky” for the offshore fishing sector.
