Who we are

We’re a group of scientists, engineers, fishers, ecologists, computer vision experts, and web developers who have come together to find new and better ways to explore the ocean. Our team comes from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Lunds Fishery, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and a variety of other institutions, combining scientific and industrial knowledge and experience.
