Welcome to Fishtek Specialising in bycatch mitigation


About Fishtek


Fishtek was established in 1999 by Pete Kibel (Fishery Biologist) and Ben Kibel (Engineer), with the aim of developing technological solutions to marine bycatch issues. Bycatch is a significant problem affecting fisheries and threatens a wide range of marine life including sea birds, turtles, sharks and cetaceans. Smart fishing using dedicated technology has the potential to prevent much of this bycatch and safeguard a number of critically endangered species.

Fishtek has focused on a range of technological approaches to reduce bycatch, in pelagic longline, gill net and line fisheries.

Fishtek has worked collaboratively with a broad range of research partners including Birdlife International, The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the Australian Antarctic Division, NOAA Fisheries, Sea Fish Authority, Australian Fisheries Management Authority and New Zealand Fisheries Conservation.
