THERE'S A BETTER WAY TO

TO MONITOR YOUR

FISHERIES

The only all-in-one Internet vessel camera system that lets you
efficiently collect, analyze and manage boat, coastal and total fish catch.

Vessels of all sizes

Shellcatch has developed a unique technology whereby a small, solar-powered, rugged, waterproof monitoring system can be mounted on even the smallest fishing vessel. With its video and GPS sensors, the system can be set to track sets and hauls of fishing gear, record video, track and manage its energy consumption autonomously. As part of this system there is an additional wifi data link unit that captures the information from the boat, processes the video and GPS data and uploads it to the Shellcatch cloud platform. Shellcatch has also created a customized smart-phone app that allows you to setup / configure the monitoring unit and understand its basic functioning parameters. If needed, the phone app can also upload the information in the monitoring unit. The cloud component offers a unique opportunity to accurately

monitor and collect statistics on by-catch of high conservation value wildlife or to certify (verify) a fishing operation as by-catch free.

- Complete camera kit with solar

- Ability to monitor and accurately collect statistics on fishing practices.

- Artificial intelligence algorithm that detects non-target species of high value conservation.

Human Observers
don't scale

Small scale coastal fisheries around the world are increasing their fishing effort to meet the ever-growing global demand for fisheries products. A high proportion of these fisheries, particularly those in developing countries – use gillnets, a gear known to be associated with high levels of by-catch of non-target, high conservation value species like marine mammals and turtles. While on-board observer programs have played an important role in adequately describing, monitoring, and eventually reducing by-catch in some large-scale offshore fisheries, small scale coastal fisheries present a greater challenge for observation and monitoring, particularly in remote areas where resources are scarce and new technologies are difficult to implement. Our system has been used to monitor over 400 vessels in Latin America.

SIMPLE
DEPLOYMENT

Installation

Camera can easily be installed either with autonomous energy (solar panels) or directly to the boats energy source.

Data collection

You get a data collector with the camera which leverages your Internet connection to automatically upload information.

Platform

All the information is uploaded to the Shellcatch platform which automati- cally processes the information. This lowers the amount of video screening time as you can zero in on important events only.

How it works

In addition to supplying the camera, Shellcatch provides a complete web platform to manage all your video data and source only what is important to you. This way, organizations can focus less on operational issues and more on higher level data analysis.

Web platform

The Shellcatch platform aims to streamline the management, storage and review of videos. Among its specifications are the following features:

Review and Registration Area: The system allows to review and record events, fishing gear, target fishing and by-catch. This GPS and Video system lowers the review time.

Graphics: The graphics contain the results of the information generated from the videos to be able to make reports.

Artificial Intelligence: The automatic detection of certain events relevant to the fishing in question can be implemented.

Download: All videos and coordinates are downloadable.

Search: The system is designed to upload a high number of videos. This requires a search mechanism to go directly to the specific vessel.

Users Invitation: When more support in the revision is required, the system allows inviting more users.
