Ashored Innovations
Ashored Innovations

Ashored is developing ropeless fishing systems and gear tracking software to prevent gear conflict with marine life and surface vessels, minimize gear loss/damage, and allow fishers to continue safe harvest during zone closures. By working with trap fishers and regulators throughout design and testing, Ashored understands the priorities and processes of users/fishers and the importance of increasing their income and reducing the negative impact traditional trap fishing has on marine ecosystems.
Ashored develops sustainable fishing technology to reduce/prevent marine entanglements, ghost gear, and ocean waste in commercial fishing.
