BlueSenz IoT for Fisheries is revolutionizing the way that FMCs (Fisheries Monitoring Centers) manage their fish stocks and marine reserves. By receiving precise and accurate fishing effort data directly from the seas, FMCs can form a more accurate picture of how to sustainably manage their fisheries.
BlueSenz is a collection of devices and wireless sensors that communicate with each other, and they ensure that an FMC receives precise data about their fleet fishing activities. If fishing activities occur, the device starts to count the number of winch revolutions, winch direction, date and time net submerged and date and time net hauled. This data is transferred via BlueTraker VMS transponder to a database server on land.
BlueSenz can upgrade BlueTraker VMS System with the following products
Precise net deployment and haul locations
FMCs are able to view when and where a net is deployed in the sea, allowing them to determine when a vessel is fishing.
Accurate winch activation data
BlueSenz sends an alerts when a winch is active. It counts the number of revolutions and rotation direction.
Ready for machine learning
Developed with a vision of being able to validate or completely replace human observers on fishing vessels by creating labelled datasets ready for machine learning tasks.
Self-installable by fishermen
Fishermen are able to attach the GearSenz by themselves (no tools needed).
No wires or cables
Wireless communication minimizes interference with other fishing gear or fishermen on board.
Increased Fishermen Accountability
FMCs can now demand almost immediate accountability from their captains if fishermen engage in illegal or improper fishing activities on the sea.
Sensors operate for up to 5 years without external power.
Data & Device security
Designed according to advanced encryption standards, the sensors data are protected and cannot be spoofed or jammed.
