Fisheries Management Systems

Trackwell FiMS manages thousands of vessels every day, all around the world

Trackwell FiMS offers a suite of fisheries management systems (search and rescue, resource management, and fisheries control). FiMS suite is used in national, international waters, and inland waters by fisheries authorities, coastguards, and navies for surveillance.

The system provides users with the tools to monitor vessel movements and use the positional data received from the system to analyse the vessels’ behaviour, for both law enforcement and resource management purposes. In almost all cases, Trackwell FiMS provides the entire software, technical maintenance, and user-level support.

Fisheries-ships communication

Trackwell FiMS has proven itself a vital component for authorities combating IUU fishing (illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing).

FiMS is fully compliant with international fisheries regulations and facilitates the exchange of information between authorities, neighboring countries, and regional fisheries management offices.

Trackwell Fisheries Management System: a suite of solutions

Trackwell FiMS offers a suite of solutions that include VMS  (Vessel Monitoring System) software, the ERS (Electronic Reporting System for managing fishing activity data), the eLOG (electronic logbook for on-board catch registration), and the FLUX Engine which translates and standardizes the data into FLUX (Fisheries Language for Universal Exchange) to comply with international regulations. These solutions are powered by Data Analysis Engine that generates powerful insights tailored to the client’s needs for different purposes such as, but not limited to, Safety at Sea, law/quota enforcement, IUU detection and research.

All of this is linked through a powerful task management system that allows users and administrators to have complete traceability of all issues and customized alerts generated by the platform, log of all actions taken by operators, vessel response, manual inputs and modifications, and other variables as defined by the customer.

The FiMS solution includes the following supplementary systems
