IoT for Fisheries

BlueSenz IoT for Fisheries is revolutionising the way that FMCs (Fisheries Monitoring Center) manage their fish stocks and marine reserves. By receiving precise and accurate fishing effort data directly from the seas, FMCs can form a more accurate picture of how to sustainably manage their fisheries.

BlueSenz is a collection of devices and wireless sensors that communicate with each other, and they ensure that an FMC receives precise data about their fleet fishing activities. If fishing activities occur, the device starts to count the number of winch revolutions, winch direction, date and time net submerged and date and time net hauled. This data is transferred via BlueTraker VMS to a database server on land.

All fishing gear becomes tagged and certified

Fishing gear is tagged with zero-power RFID tags called GearBolt. These are readable using a mobile RFID reader, providing the FMCs with a national fleet ‘fishing gear register’.

Accurate winch activation data

WSN sends an alert when a winch is active. It counts the number of revolutions and rotation direction.


Precise net deployment and haul locations

FMCs are able to view when and where a net is deployed in the sea, allowing them to determine when a vessel is fishing.


Self-installable by fishermen

Fishermen are able to attach the wireless sensors by themselves (no tools needed).


No wires or cables

Wireless communication minimizes interference with other fishing gear or fishermen on board.


Data & Device security

Designed according to advance encryption standards, the sensors data are protected and cannot be spoofed or jammed.


Long lifespan

Sensors operate for up to 5 years without external power.


Increased Fishermen Accountability

FMCs can now demand almost immediate accountability from their captains if fishermen engage in illegal or improper fishing activities on the sea.
