About

 

 

FishVerify, a free mobile app, helps users identify freshwater and saltwater fish with the click of a camera while simultaneously providing pertinent local fishing regulations. The app provides up-to-date local rules and regulations on size and bag limits based on the phone's GPS location. It also describes the appearance of your catch in specific detail as well as habitats, fishing methods, state record and even edibility.

No other fishing reference tool on the market contains live scan ability or the ability to import an image of a previous catch to instantly identify the species. FishVerify uses the latest in image recognition and artificial intelligence to identify your catch in seconds.

A must-have reference tool to identify local marine life, understand the complex and ever-changing rules and regulations and learn about marine habitats.

 

 

 

 A BOAT.

THE FLORIDA KEYS.

A MYSTERIOUS FISH.

FishVerify began in April 2014 after our founders returned from a fishing trip unable to identify one of their catches.

Even with a combined 80+ years of fishing in Florida waters, they were still stumped by this mysterious fish. They decided to build an app that would identify fish and tell us the local rules & regulations.

Know the fish. Know the rules. Save the seas and support sustainable fishing.

ANDY, CHUCK, AND JASON

 

We protect less than 2% of our oceans, even though 71% of our planet is covered by water. Fish are worth more to humanity than gold. Over 1 billion people rely on fish as their primary source of protein. 

80% of the worlds fish stocks are fully or over exploited; we are overfishing our oceans.

Each year billions of marine animals, including many endangered species become bi-catch (the unintended victims of indiscriminate fishing practices). The incorrect identification of a particular fish species or not knowing the local rules and regulations are major contributors to the problem.

If we don't take action, some scientists have predicted that our fish stocks will collapse by the middle of the century.

Marine regulations work; they provide a refuge for species including fish, top predators and migratory animals by protecting the habitats they depend on during critical life stages .

Restoring our oceans will take time, so we need to act globally and act now.

 

 We've spent nearly two years collecting data and testing multiple deep learning approaches to stand up a solution with the greatest accuracy possible.

Our matching approach uses a hybrid of tried and true computer vision techniques incorporated into a convolutional neural network using the most advanced artificial intelligence currently available.

FishVerify has over 1.5 million images and growing, spanning across more than 1000 unique fish species. For our beta release we've selected 150 of the most commonly caught fish in Florida and trained our system to recognize them and synchronize the latest fishing rules and regulations.

For a list of the currently trained species please click here.

 

 

 

 Hey Backers!

We have worked for more than 2 years developing a solution, testing different machine learning approaches, collecting species data, integrating with multiple data sources, field testing, building a useful app and finally getting FishVerify to a point where we can proudly say we are ready to share our app with others.

We need your help to expand the solution outside of Florida and bring FishVerify to other states in the US and countries around the world. The infrastructure expenses to keep a neural network of our size running and constantly learning can get expensive. Funds raised from this campaign will go into the application including:

  • Technology and infrastructure expenses 
  • Image collection & image processing campaigns 
  • Android version of the current iOS app 
  • Raise awareness of the app

We thank you in advance for taking the time to see what we are all about.

Save the seas and support sustainable fishing. Know the fish, know the rules.

Tight Lines!

Risks and challenges

We worked diligently to overcome all technical hurdles so we could present a completed product before the launch of this Kickstarter campaign.

We appreciate your investment, and with your help we will continue to fine-tune FishVerify and expand outside of Florida to other states in the US and countries around the world.
