  5. 5. SmartFish project Background • SmartFish: EU funded project to strengthen national and regional fishery/aquaculture policy and strategy frameworks – Support participating countries to fulfill international commitment towards responsible fisheries improve food securitytowards responsible fisheries and to improve food security • SmartFish Result 1: “Enhance Regional and National Fisheries and Aquaculture Strategies and Policies” – Component 1M3 aims to “improve knowledge and information in support to fisheries management processes “ 5iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome
  6. 6. Harmonization Workshop (june 2012) • Aimed to address harmonization issues between the 4 main identified Information System or approach containing data of interest of management plans supported by the project:supported by the project: – WIOFish: a regional knowledge base on West Indian Ocean Fisheries (http://wiofish.bluebox.co.za/) – FIRMS: an international knowledge base including resources from West Indian Ocean (http://firms.fao.org) – StatBase: a statistical database containing fishery statistics provided by West Indian Ocean countries (http://statbase1.smartfish.d4science.org/statbase/) 6iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome
  7. 7. Harmonization Workshop (june 2012) • To identify common concepts shared across the systems/approach including common reference data and classification as common standard for the Regional Information System. • To identify needs for mapping concepts, defining gateways between the concepts and reference data not matching between the 4 systems. • To bring together the previous analysis to propose options for a Regional Information System 7iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome
  8. 8. Harmonization Workshop (june 2012)? The 3 fisheries Information Systems concepts and their relationships 8iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome their relationships have been analyzed and summarized The floor is prepared to exploit these structure of information
  9. 9. Toward a Fisheries Regional Portal • HW Recommendations: – Creation of a simple portal (with simple web technologies) – Embedding iMarine web semantic tools to offer complex functionalities to the portal: being able to exploit data in afunctionalities to the portal: being able to exploit data in a seamless way with very little data exchanges Not yet another centralized database 9iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome
  10. 10. Toward a Fisheries Regional Portal • Achieved so far: – Prototype 1: proof of concepts – Prototype 2: enhanced functionalities and contents with involvement of the community – user validationinvolvement of the community – user validation • Now in the process of making the portal public 10iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome

  13. 13. Services from iMarine connectCube • Indexing and annotation process taking into consideration each source IS data access and sharing policies • Creation of search indexes and search services to• Creation of search indexes and search services to exploit these search indexes • Provide a list of results to the user query the portal embeds these services in a user friendly way to guide the user in his data search 13iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome

  16. 16. Enriching iMarine services • In the process of embedding iMarine web semantics tool in Chimaera: development of libraries to exploit the search result • Working closely with iMarine developers to integrate the JS libraries to exploit the search result as part of the gCube to offer a complete solution (from data indexing to result exploitation) 16iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome
  17. 17. Conclusion • Proof of concept validated: this model could be extended to other databases and information systems (Regional or national) • Address the issue of data exchanges but can• Address the issue of data exchanges but can face problems given restricting data access and sharing policies 17iMarine Event - 7 March 2014 – FAO-Rome
