vCatch is an integrated application for electronic logbooks. It’s an easy-to-use tool with a powerful database designed to be used by fisheries authorities for catch effort registration.
Catch effort has been registered for many years with paper logbooks aboard the fishing vessels. Much manpower on the vessels and at the authorities has been used to manually fill in forms and afterwards typing the information into data processing applications. With vCatch the manual writing and re-typing are eliminated along with most errors and misreadings.
vCatch consists of an on-board fishing vessel module and the module at the fisheries authority. They can be used separately, but the advantages of having a single system are truly leveraged when both modules are used.
vCatch has a large number of predefined fields and data types and can be customized to country specific requirements as needed. vCatch gives all user groups a number of unique advantages that makes it interesting to use the system. With an unique ease of use, vCatch has been designed to benefit all stakeholders.
