    The Right Light for the Right Fish

    Catching the wrong fish is both an environmental disaster and an economic burden for fishermen. SafetyNet, a UK start-up, has successfully launched a crowdfunding campaign to help develop Pisces, its light-emitting solution.

    The system is based on the simple fact that fish and crustaceans are attracted by light, but not all in the same way. Pisces allows fishermen to “specify the wavelength, intensity, polarization and flash-pattern of the light it emits,” as a function of the species they want to catch.

    The battery-powered Pisces has been designed for easy attachment to fishing nets. According to SafetyNet, a single unit should cost £1000,about 1140 €.
