Catch App provides commercial fishermen with an easy-to-use, future proof means of digitally recording fishing activity as it occurs. Designed by SuccorfishM2M and developed in conjunction with Blue Marine Foundation specifically for the global fisheries industry, it provides inshore fishermen with a complete, up-to-date, online digital diary whilst providing critical fisheries and environmental data for effective marine management.SuccorfishM2M Catch App gives a highly detailed, real time picture of vessel location and activities and digitally stores and submits catch entries that are usually recorded manually. It allows fishermen to compare gear, bait and season performance as well as calculate catch per unit effort in a bid to encourage efficient practices and fisheries sustainability. The app promotes total traceability by allowing instant catch reporting prior to landing and can manage quotas through efficient, real-time reporting. This multi-functionality fully supports the need for documented fisheries and taps into the enormous wealth of knowledge that fishermen possess. By digitally recording their fishing activities on Catch App, fishermen can benefit their own commercial businesses as well as marine management, sustainability, traceability and conservation interests through fish stock, environmental and species data to name but a few.
