  • Description:
    "Ecotrust received a one-year grant of $75,810 through NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program for a project through our Marine Consulting Initiative to develop, deploy, and fieldtest an integrated technical design solution for trip ticket forms. In the fall of 2013, Ecotrust's Marine Consulting Initiative was launched as a separate but wholly-owned subsidiary entity, Point 97, driven by the same mission: to deliver technology solutions and engagement strategies for coastal and marine planning that better connect people with place, bridge differing perspectives, and implement management decisions in an inclusive and transparent way. Point 97 works towards this mission in regions around the world through consulting, contracted services, and high-tech product development. All existing grant-funded projects will be accomplished as planned, and Point 97 will continue to partner with Ecotrust and other collaborators in future grant-funded work. With the support of this one-year NOAA CRCP award, the project team accomplished a needs assessment for an electronic catch reporting system in the Caribbean, designed the initial product, implemented three major updates to the product, and received feedback from partners to consider through the stages of development and implementation. The number of participating fishers and their submitted reports demonstrated the success of the electronic reporting system; we collected over 600 electronic catch reports from 27 fishers in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) and Puerto Rico (PR) over a period of nine months. The final Digital Deck electronic catch report system included a catch report application (mobile and desktop) and dashboards for both the fishers (mobile and desktop dashboards) and the agency fisheries managers (desktop dashboards). Throughout the project we coordinated with fishers, agency fisheries managers, and regional data managers via in-person meetings and phone conferences. Initial onsite visits enabled the project team to recruit and train cooperating fishers in collaboration with agency partners. The project team continued training and support for fishers through later site visits and regular remote communication, and worked with both fishers and agency partners to ensure that the final product fit technology preferences and data requirements. This final report details the progress made during the grant period towards approved objectives and the project results. Final grant financials have been submitted separately through the NOAA Grants Online portal, according to reporting guidelines"--Executive Summary.
