Calling all citizen scientists! Ocean researchers need your help in analyzing huge volumes of video that support their discoveries and lead to a better understanding of our ocean planet. Digital Fishers is a science-oriented crowdsourcing game-with-a-purpose that recruits people on the Web to gather data selected from thousands of hours of video, archived every year from undersea cameras.
How do you participate? It’s simple! Just count the sablefish on 60 second video clips from Ocean Networks Canada deep sea video cameras. You’ll help scientists better understand life in the ocean - and have fun!
Ocean Networks Canada enables new discoveries – connecting researchers, teachers, students and the public with the ocean and providing opportunities for you to become one of our growing group of citizen scientists. Your support causes a powerful ripple effect that generates the ideas, builds know-how, develops new tools that allow us to stay focused on our global leadership position.
