Sustainable Fishing Solutions

Future Oceans is the world leader in the design and manufacture of sustainable commercial fishing products. We understand that seafood is a vital food source and we work closely with the global commercial fishing industry helping to ensure that seafood is caught economically and sustainably. Our marine mammal alarms, known as “Pingers”, are used to help reduce the incidental capture of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises in fishing nets all over the world.

Protecting Alaskan Fisheries

Commercial fisheries are under enormous pressure from government agencies, environmental groups and the public, to deliver sustainable seafood. Alaska’s commercial fishing industry is one of the most environmentally pro-active in the world. The voluntary use of Pingers is a perfect example of how Alaskan fisheries are at the forefront of sustainably harvested seafood.

Future Oceans - Leading the World in “Pinger” Technology

The unintended entanglement of marine mammals in commercial fishing gear is known as “Cetacean Bycatch”. Scientists estimate that over 300,000 Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises (Cetaceans) are accidentally drowned in fishing nets every year. No one wants this to happen.

Cetacean bycatch is a global problem and represents the single largest threat to many marine mammal populations around the world.

Pingers are small electronic alarms that emit signals that alert Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises to the presence of fishing nets. Pingers have been scientifically proven to be the only known solution to significantly reduce cetacean bycatch.  The use of Pingers is mandatory in parts of Europe and the USA.

As the cost of commercial fishing gear continues to soar worldwide, the voluntary use of Pingers is growing quickly.  Fishermen understand that Pingers provide a highly effective, low cost solution to the often catastrophic problems caused by interactions with marine mammals.

Future Oceans is a key member of a stakeholder group that includes governments, researchers, non-government organisations, environmental groups and commercial fishing organisations, who share a common goal of reducing cetacean bycatch.

We are recognized by all stakeholders as the world leader in Pinger technology.

We share an important responsibility with other stakeholders to develop awareness of cetacean bycatch and the role Pingers play in reducing the unnecessary loss of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises.

We welcome everyone to join our efforts to reduce cetacean bycatch wherever it occurs around the world.
