Don't Swipe the Shrimp

November 1, 2006 By: Stephanie vL Henkel, Sensors Sensors


It's okay to poach eggs but definitely not okay not to poach shrimp—they're the livelihood of honest shrimpers. Poachers, operating after dark, have had the advantage over law enforcement officials trying to nab them. The EMX MidWatch thermal imaging camera, with its Thermal-Eye 3620AS amorphous silicon core, rides on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission craft, Guardian. When the ship finds a vessel in waters where shrimping is banned, the imager evaluates the temperature of any nets on board. If a net is cold, or close to water temperature, it's a pretty sure bet that net was recently used. Busted!
