Hafsyn catch and onboard production registration system was recently installed on the sixty-four meter Arctic Shrimp Trawler, MV Sivulliq, owned by Baffin Fisheries. The Hafsyn solution simplifies and automates the registration process, providing company managers with up-to-date information regarding quota management. The system will also help prepare the company for the new electronic logbook regulation, issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, which will become mandatory for offshore fishing vessels in 2019.

Trackwell recently launched its Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) for the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) and for the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC). Trackwell is providing FFA and WCPFC with a new customized VMS solution, in a hosted environment. The systems offer extensive monitoring and alerting options for the 3,000 vessels reporting actively to the systems, using various types of vessel units or Mobile Transceiver Units (MTUs) and communication service providers. In addition, the FFA system receives and processes AIS data from about 2,500 vessels as a complementary data to the official VMS data. This newest implementation allows both institutions and their respective member countries, participating territories and cooperating non-members to monitor roughly 25 million square nautical miles in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean using the Trackwell VMS. The solution is hosted in Australia at the Amazon Web Services hosting center.

Furthermore, the system provides the option of tailoring the scope of information that is shared between the systems or individual countries, using an advanced data sharing mechanism that is built upon the data sharing rules of each organisation. One such example is that the members of FFA can see all their flagged vessels wherever they are and foreign vessels within their own exclusive economic zone (EEZ). The member countries can also share access to each other’s EEZs if they are authorized to do so, thereby increasing the monitoring and...
