Pilgrim Media Group is looking for new boats and crew to add to its cast for Wicked Tuna's 9th season. According to the post on the National Geographic website, they are looking for commercial tuna fishermen hunting for bluefin tuna in the North Atlantic Ocean that are based in Gloucester, Massachusetts, or in the nearby New England area. Pilgrim requires that the captains stick to the size limits and quotas.
“Producers are in your area right now meeting tough, outgoing tuna fishermen to be featured on NatGeo’s Wicked Tuna. It’s the chance of a lifetime for any captain, deckhand or charter service that wants to get their name or company on national television and show America what they’re made of.”
Spanish company Marine Instruments is preparing to break into the security and defense sector alongside their work with the fisheries industry. The company recently unveiled a new innovation, the Tunadrone, an “unmanned aerial vehicle for the detection of free school tuna”. According to their website, the drone will be used to identify birds and tuna school in order to “support sustainable and efficient fishing.”
The drone was manufactured and designed entirely by Marine Instruments and boasts a number of new features such as autonomous launch and landing, solar and battery power sources, real time HD images with a speed of 35 knots and a range of 18 nautical miles.
