Let' Talk About Scamp Baby!

Published 05/16/2018

This week Harbor Light Software started a new project that we are excited about. SCAMP! Scamp  is related to the Gag and inhabit the continental shelf waters in the Gulf of Mexico to Florida and northward along the East Coast to North Carolina. HLS is working with the South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council (www.safmc.net) to develop a smart phone application that will allow fishermen to report a SCAMP encounter, or report that they had no Scamp encounter during their fishing day. The application is part of a larger citizen science program that will provide more detailed information about fisheries in the South Atlantic. In this project commercial, for-hire and  recreational fishermen will work in collaboration with and under the direction of the SAFMC and will partner with professional scientists to achieve common goals of data collection . We are thrilled to be a part of this very innovative project, Check back in for updates as the project moves forward!
