Fish­ing alert sys­tem launch

- Tech · Energy · Industries · United Kingdom

FLTC Ser­vices, the op­er­a­tional part of the Fish­eries Off­shore Oil and Gas Legacy Trust Fund, has launched a new ver­sion of in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy aimed at alert­ing fish­ers to the pres­ence of oil and gas in­fra­struc­ture.

FishSAFE Mk3 in­cludes ma­jor im­prove­ments, such as a high-res­o­lu­tion touch screen and track­ball op­tion. It up­dates its in­ter­nal haz­ards data­base au­to­mat­i­cally from the in­ter­net and there is also an on­line mes­sag­ing fa­cil­ity.

FLTC Ser­vices said feed­back from skip­pers who have tri­alled the new units, which are avail­able only to fish­ers in the UK fleet, had been “very pos­i­tive”.
