The Joint Workshop of the ICES-FAO Working Group on Fishing Technology and Fish Behaviour [WGFTFB] and the Working Group on Fisheries Acoustics Science and Technology [WGFAST] (JFATB) chaired by Paul Winger (Canada) and Alex De Robertis (USA) met in Nelson, New Zealand on 3 April 2017 in conjunction with the meetings of WGFTFB and WGFAST to:
a) examine the observer effect: how platforms and instruments affect the behaviour of aquatic fauna,
b) review recent progress in image analysis and machine learning techniques for efficient data processing in aquatic research, and
c) facilitate links between WGFTFB and WGFAST as well as other research organizations with expertise in gear technology, optical and acoustic sampling methods, and fish behaviour.
The meeting consisted of 10 presentations of novel research that stimulated discussion on a broad range of subjects in areas relevant to the membership of both working groups. There were a total of 68 participants from 16 nations.
