"With Shellcatch we have implemented monitoring activities for coastal marine protected areas, a subject with which we have generated many important contacts.
For all these reasons, in all confidence, I would recommend Shellcatch to my peers or other organizations"

Testimonials


I am very happy with the results of the workshops that we have been doing with fishers all over the island about the e-Reporting application. The reception has been excellent, everyone is as excited as we are, so we are very hopeful at the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources with the reception of the application for fisheries statistics.

The fishermen will have the possibility to see in real time how many fish they are catching. This will serve as a database and as a tool for fishermen, and will also serve as a tool for us, the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, because we will have the possibility to monitor more intensively our annual catch limits of fish stocks, and to manage our fisheries responsibly and consistently and in accordance with conservation principles. We are very excited to have Shellcatch.

We record all the different species that fishers bring back from the sea, including their weight. And here fishers also have a chance to sell their products to end-consumers. They very much value the App developed by Shellcatch, and they are eager to use it, because it is much easier to report fishing activities day by day.

We believe that this traceability project is of utmost importance, not only for the region, not only for us, but for fishing throughout Chile. We believe that artisanal fishing needs tools to demonstrate the origin of its products, can reach sustainability and provide an added value.

The eReporting App will make a tremendous difference to us, Fisheries Officials, as well as facilitating our work at the laboratory, benefiting the environment, and mostly benefiting fishers, who are at the center of all this initiative.

The eReporting App will help fishers report their daily statistics; and these statistics will reach our database much more easily and quickly, which is what we expect from this process, so that we can better control fish and seafood landings.

The Traceability and Commercial Accompaniment Program allows all artisanal fishers to obtain the same income we are now having, but with the difference of fishing fewer resources. Therefore, that's what sustainability is about. It is the future, and I invite you to participate, with confidence. These are giant steps towards a sustainable and socioeconomic development to improve the quality of life in our fishing coves.
