Digital Fishers | Nature Nation


Each week, we feature a worthy citizen science project or nature news segment from around the world. This week, as we continue to feature projects to do from home and in honor of World Oceans Day (June 8th), we’re featuring Digital Fishers from Ocean Networks Canada (ONC).

Digital Fishers is a science observation game that, according to ONC, “helps contribute to our understanding of: environmental factors in the deep ocean, biodiversity associated with deep-sea environments and how species interact with each other and with their environment.” All you need is a computer and 60 seconds. Get started by analyzing minute-long videos here!
