Mr Pascal Katana, a student of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Nairobi has designed a simple yet sophisticated technology that could dramatically change the way fishing is done in Kenya. The electronic trap lures the fish into their captivity by imitating the sound they make while feeding. It was built using waste radio and computer equipment.
How does it work:“It attracts a school of fish around it, then automatically triggers a signal through an embedded mobile phone to a designated number, alerting the fisherman of the positioning of the fish”
