What is Fishery Manager

Fishery Manager is designed for fishing authorities to manage all vessel activities via CatchLog’s vessel electronic log book system.

Fishery Manager lets you monitor all critical activities for the vessels in your region: what is their current position; what was their last activity; details of catches; details of landings; comparison between estimated catch and actual landing. It also allows for defining closures, quotas and exclusion zones for your fishery. All closure/quota/exclusion zone information is propagated to all vessels in the authority via CatchLog.
