The article features the Rowley family of Australia and their use of new technology to boost their fishing business. It says that they started out with the East Coast Tuna and Billfish Fishery, which operated in the 1970s and 1980s, exporting much of their catch to Japan. They eventually set up a new fishery off southern Queensland, working with VirHydro to create a hydraulic reel to bring in fish which is supported by hydro-acoustic sensor RoxAnn to test the sea bottom. Their business is supported by a consulting service and international exports.
