EcoScope App

Ecoscope

The EcoScope App will be a smartphone application which will enable citizens to report on marine hazards, illegal fishing practices, removal or stranding of protected species, marine litter, pollution and any malpractice and environmental hazard they come across. The report will be transferred online to local management authorities or the relevant port police, with GPS location, pictures and details depending on the incident. This community-based tool will enhance public involvement the cooperation of local communities with authorities and will provide important information (citizen science) for the EcoScope project, fisheries managers and marine policy in general.
