17th of October : International Sawfish Day !

This year we decided to celebrate International Sawfish Day by congratulating the work just performed during Brest Ocean Hackathon to conduct deep-machine learning for identification of illegal trade of sawfishes on Internet through semi-automatic image recognition.

Many thanks to engineers and students : Arnaud, Thomas (from ITM Atlantic), Vinicius, Lucas, Paul and Solenn (from UBO) for their commitment and productive outputs to the ‘Traffic-Track’ challenge.

For sure the continuation of this team work will be profitable to sawfishes who are still suffering from massive outlawed business world around and are unfortunately targeted to meet the demand for trade (rostrum, teeth, meat, fins and skin).

Wishing you all active sawfish projects for next year.
