The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has announced the details of their 2011 Smart Gear Competition, aimed at inspiring the creation of better fishing technologies to help eliminate bycatch.

The contest, which is open from March 1 until August 31, features over $50,000 in prizes for inventors, fishermen, or any other Marine-ophile who can design new “ways to make fishing gear more environmentally friendly by reducing the capture of unwanted marine life, typically termed ‘bycatch’.”

“WWF’s goal with the Smart Gear competition is to inspire innovative ideas for environmentally-friendly fishing gear,” said Dr. Bill Fox, Vice President of Fisheries for WWF-US. “This competition identifies real-world solutions so fishermen can fish ‘smarter’ – allowing them to maintain a commercially viable business while helping to maintain ocean health.”

More information for this innovative, environmental program can be found on the WWF webpage.
