The Importance of
Training, Experience & Optimizations
for
The Evaluation & Fisher’s Operation of Ropeless
Marco Flagg
CEO, Desert Star Systems LLC
Ropeless Consortium Meeting 2020
Observations
• Release mechanisms failed 20 percent of the time and had to be
abandoned.
• Gear is unmanageably slow and prone to be lost at sea.
Conclusions
• It would make marine mammal interactions with lost gear more
frequent, not less.
• It would make profit impossible.
WhyThis Contrast?
Ropeless is…
• Slow
• Increases Gear Loss
• Cannot Make a Profit
• Technology is faulty
WhyThis Contrast?
Fisher Rosskelly…
• Saved SignificantTime
• Reduced Gear Loss
• Went from #20 to #2 in state by landings

Pop-Up Fail vs. Equipment Loss
Why Ropeless Gear Loss Rates
Are Low
1. Not subject to surface risks such as boat strikes,
entanglement, vandalism, poaching.
2. You can localize submerged gear with acoustic ranging or
depth sounder. You know if it’s still there.
3. Precision location & grappling skills of ropeless fishers
translate to high recovery rates.
4. Value of release provides a higher economic incentive for
recovery.

Total test deployments since 2019: 205
Total pop-up fails: 17 (4.8%)
Bag rigging error at “learning” level: 15
Failure to power the STM-4 deck box: 1
Failure to properly secure release wire: 1
Failure of release mechanism: 0

Conclusions:
• The pop-up reliability of ropeless devices strongly depends on the
experience of the operator.
• Gear loss rates should be significantly below static buoy systems. An
experienced operator will consider submerged gear ‘safe’ and surfaced
gear ‘at risk’
• Ropeless can safe significant amount of time by improving gear access in
high currents, or avoiding the need to patrol fishing grounds. But, time
savings also require boat and workflow optimizations.
• In our experience, it takes about three years of ropeless operation for a
fisher to achieve a high level of proficiency, and optimize the boat and
work flow for ropeless.
