Self-reporting applications are a promising solution for monitoring fisheries data. However, they still fail to provide accurate information and do not always engage users. In the video below, Eurico Noleto introduces Shiny4SelfReport, an application he has developed to address such shortcomings.
Instead of using expensive, proprietary software, Shiny4SelfReport uses common and affordable technologies. The tool, developed in R, gathers fishers’ input and stores them in the cloud. It was designed to be simple and adaptable, aiming to fill gaps in the management of fisheries in developing nations.
