SmartCatch is a fishing technology company with products designed to perform in harsh environments, giving fishermen more control over their harvest. SmartCatch’s trawl-net solutions are technology products designed to help fishermen maximize their intended catch and minimize the harvest of non-target species. DigiCatch is their digital catch monitoring system – a real-time, remotely controllable HD video, lighting and sensor system that retrofits any trawl net easily from the 3rd wire CoAx. DigiCatch gives fishermen live eyes inside the net, allowing the captain to react to their harvest contents to save time and fuel each tow. With a fully digital, live stream of the fish entering the net, DigiCatch enables control and visibility of this process. Their product DigiServices helps address the “data deficiencies” in commercial fishing. DigiCatch Systems capture of data at the point of harvest, organizing that data into a hyperledger format (blockchain, eCBT) in order to support supply chain traceability, stock assessments and species identification. Data gets transferred in near real time via satellite or shore-based cellular networks (if available).
