At Pacific Marine Expo 2021, participants on the Slinky Pots to Ropeless Tech panel got together to discuss marine mammal and gear interactions, changing research and regulations, and emerging tech solutions. One of the participants was Dan Watson, whose company is focused on creating Precision Fishing technologies that use hardware and data to move closer to a world where humans and the ocean thrive together.

We caught up with Dan to detail what was discussed during the panel, how he helps to remind everyone that ocean issues are climate issues and much more.
