curated by | August 2, 2014

“The Pacific territory of Palau earlier this year declared no commercial fishing would take place in its 200 nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zone. … The country currently uses a Cessna Skymaster, and has also explored the use of unmanned drones, to patrol the fishing zone which is roughly the size of France. … Todd Kleperis of Liquid Robotics International says the wave and solar powered skimmer is a much cheaper option.”
