What’s New in Fishing?

SWZ|Maritime's September issue immerses itself in the world of fishing; what's happening in terms of regulation, shipbuilding, technology and innovation?

The landing obligation, forcing fishermen to take their entire catch ashore, even the discards, the impending Brexit and the uncertainty regarding the EU's stance on pulse fishing are all discussed.

In addition, we look at what fising vessels are being built in the Netherlands, some of the innovations on board and the innovative solutions students have come up with to soften the effects of the landing obligation.

Ship Plans, Solar Boats and CFD

Apart from this special on fishing, we look into the convential 2D ship plans and their use. Is it time to replace the 2D plan with its 3D successor? Additionally, Delft University of Technology students tell their story of becoming runner-up at the world championship for solar boats and Sjouke Sipkema and Leo Poppelier of SIP Marine explain how CFD-simulation can be used to create more efficient ship tunnels.
