PUPFish - Pop Up Fishing Systems

These are our simple, low-cost pop up fishing releases that use a motor-driven cam to release a line and buoy to the surface. Acoustic and timer versions of the system are available and these systems are in use in a broad range of fisheries to reduce entanglements, ship interactions, gear pilfering and gear loss during storms.
