We believe in data

It is our mission to help fishermen with their data. In 2006, we developed our first data app that enabled fishermen to trade their quotas and report their catch. This process opened our eyes to all the other IT and reporting difficulties fishermen were facing.

 

We knew we could help.

 

Our diverse technology, fishing, and business backgrounds add experience and perspective to the fishing solutions we develop, and we are committed to helping fishermen comply with sustainability requirements and become increasingly profitable in a changing global industry. It is our goal to create electronic reporting and traceability tools that make profits for fishermen, for the industry, and for the future.

Strength through knowledge

Capturing your fishery data is a fundamental step towards controlling your livelihood. Having quick and organized access to your fishing records puts substantial power in your hands, and our fisheries platform is designed to help you control your future.
