These vessels, with the novel technologies they employ, may one day be an essential component in operating sustainable fisheries globally!

On the 11th of December, the teams will gather at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute to individually present their designs to a panel of esteemed judges across the fishing and marine industry.
