Episode Description

Native Californian Shah Selbe has a lifelong love of the ocean. Concerned when he learned about the severe threat illegal fishing poses to both the human and animal populations that depend on the ocean, Shah put his engineering training to work looking for a solution. His approach demonstrates the potential for technology to help us address the globe’s most pressing environmental problems. Shah is the creator of FishNET, a platform approach to tracking illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing worldwide. FishNET uses a variety of technologies, including a smartphone app, drones and underwater microphones to monitor and share data about what’s going on in the water around the world. Tune in on April 21 to learn what terms like “open source,” “crowdsourced,” and “systems thinking” mean and how Shah is applying these principles to make a big difference in the effort to preserve our oceans.
