My honours year project is well underway - check out my blog for weekly updates of my progress.

Beginning the year I was set on developing solution to retrieve lost or disregarded fishing gear to minimise the 640million tonnes entering our seas each year. My design aims to deter/prevent the loss of ghost gear (particularly creels) at sea through improving the visibility of buoys. Through using wave power, I am developing a self sufficient and affordable lit buoy. The product is primarily directed for commercial fishermen using static gear as well as other water users.


Final design will be presented at the DJCAD degree show on the 22nd May 2020 and at New Designers event in London 8th-11th July.

Throughout the course of my honours project I have kept a weekly blog tracking my development and directional change. Keep in the loop with my thought process by reading my blog weekly.
