Commercial Fisheries Database Rebuild

The Saugeen Ojibway First Nation (SON) Commercial Fisheries database was developed nearly a decade ago, prior to mobile computing, cloud computing, and implementation of many of the current standards of IT. This project will redevelop the existing database using modern database and programming architectures (i.e. MySQL, PHP, Java), improve data storage, and provide users with real time feedback. The data stored in the SON Commerical Fisheries database is used to monitor the health and well-being of the population of, for example, the Lake Huron lake whitefish – a economically, socially, and culturally important species to the SON.
