Blue Crab: Chesapeake Bay Maryland

The Maryland Blue Crab fishery is a single-species fishery that dates back hundreds of years. The FACTS™ E-hails, E-logs and Landed Catch modules have been introduced to the fishery. As a near-shore fishery, the watermen (crab fishers) are within cellular communication range, allowing watermen to use FACTS™ via smartphones, tablet computers, a text messaging interface, or a call center.

The following videos demonstrate a unique and special implementation of FACTS™.
