Papua New Guinea, Marshall Islands test electronic catch system

31 March 2015

The Papua New Guinea National Fisheries Authority (NFA) will initiate full-scale trials of an innovative catch documentation system (eCDS) for on-board fisheries observers. The new system uses near real-time data through Android tablets and satellite transmitters shall "enhance the quality, reliability, and timeliness of critical fisheries information, and will considerably improve the management of tuna stocks”. The system includes electronic forms that can be used to cross reference and validate catch and effort, especially with respect to the vessel day scheme where vessel owners can purchase and trade days fishing at sea in places subject to Nauru Agreement (PNA).
