Established 2010, E-Catch formed to respond to the requirement of its members to provide a cost effective Electronic Logbook Solution to the Fisheries Industries.
To be able to do this on board of the fishing ship one will need the electronic logbook designed and created by E-Catch.

E-Catch has been developed by working shoulder to shoulder with professionals from the business. By manner of trials and testing in cooperation with the government, a product has been created that adheres to the standards set by the government with an excellent balance between user friendliness and functionality being achieved.

This solution gives the skipper and company staff an updated and detailed overview of the fishing activity on all active vessels. This information can be used as a basis for management decisions, planning purposes and detailed documentation of fishing activity, catch, production, landing etc. Several of our customers use data from E-Catch as a part of the documentation required for environmental certifications like the MSC certification.
