Ensure a timely and accurate use of quota data, using business intelligence and graphical tools, which give the ultimate overview of quota uptake at any given point in time.

vCheck is designed for use by the fisheries authorities. The system works as a graphical drill-down of data. It gives both an overview of all the vast amounts of data that indicate the quota usage and many possibilities to dive into the underlying data.

  • Avoid overfishing
  • Spend all quotas

Real-time Overview

Timeliness is important when working with the quota data and analysing the quota usage. Old data gives an inaccurate background for decision making.

The vCheck system shows the year-to-date uptake of all quotas in order to avoid overfishing and making sure that the industry spends the quotas.

Comparing the historical catch activity with the current activity - on a daily or monthly basis - provides the overview necessary to plan and react to ensure the best quota usage possible. The comparison immediately shows changes in the seasonal fisheries that are so important to know as early as possible.

You can easily follow the seasonal changes for the fishery within each quota with the year-by-year comparison feature.

Validating Data

It takes vast amounts of data to calculate the quota uptake. All logbook details must be available in order to aggregate the fishing activity and compare that with the quotas given for the individual vessels. But even this is not enough to ensure an accurate and complete picture of the fishing activity.

By comparing the logbook data with sales notes and VMS activity, you will ensure a higher degree of accuracy. This in turn allows for more and better ways to ensure the quality and accuracy of the logbook data.


The initial overview from where the user can drill down into the underlying data. Open and closed quotas are included in the total list depending on the search criteria.

Revealing Details

When drilling down into the data for a quota, the details about the catch can be seen on a per vessel basis.

In the screenshot below the activities for two vessels can be seen. The interface shows aggregated activities month-by-month for a given quota for each vessel. By clicking on the catch values, the individual catch lines from the logbooks are shown. If integration with the VMS is available, clicking on the Month values will bring up the positions and track for the selected month. Quota uptake, year-to-date.

The example shows a graphical profile of the selected quota with current year activity, 5 year average catch profile as well as total and divided quota.

Better Control with Alerts

vCheck can generate alerts based on rules that are set up to validate the logbook data. The rules and alert values can be modified to accommodate different requirements. Typical rules will validate the speed, catch per hour and other such values.

Government authorities in Denmark and Greenland are using vCheck
