VDR management system for fishing boat activities

MIMA: 25 June 2018

The latest in the series of MIMA Talks was by Associate Professor Lin Chung Hung from the Department of Systems and Naval Mechatronic Engineering of the National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan. He spoke on the ‘Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) for Fishing Boats Activities’ based on the Taiwanese experience and enforced by the Taiwan Fishery Agency.
