Archipelago EM systems are comprehensive data collection platforms designed to operate autonomously onboard commercial fishing vessels for long periods of time.
Built by Marine Instruments in collaboration with Archipelago, Marine ObserveTM , will serve as the backbone for all future EM advancements. Featuring WiFi, 4G, satellite communications, and integration with electronic logbooks, MarineObserve is the next generation of control center for commercial fisheries monitoring.
The EM ObserveTM control center is the heart of our EM system, recording data securely, and monitoring the status of sensors to trigger recording from up to eight cameras. Purpose built for commercial fishing vessels, EM Observe has been deployed on over 600 vessels for tens of thousands of fishing days of proven performance.
LIME , (Lite Integrated Monitoring Equipment) is a low-cost data collection platform that allows users to collect and access fishery-related activities in near real-time. LIME was designed to fit on a variety of vessels, with a minimal footprint that makes it ideal for smaller vessels without the space for a full-scale EM system. Integrated into this product is the award winning security product, BRNKL, developed by Barnacle Systems, allowing vessel operators access to safety and security information from their vessel, no matter where they are in the world. Offered in both Indoor or Outdoor (IP66) Models.
FishVue Mobile , will gather data related to fishing effort, including date, time, and location while the high quality imagery will provide essential data on retained and discarded catch, plus catch handling. Rugged tablet-based EM System that is catered towards smaller vessels and offers versatile mounting and enclosure options. You will be able to upload directly from the app using either Wifi or cellular data.
Software tools that meet fisheries data needs.
EM Record (EMR)
EM Interpret (EMI)
EM RecordTM is the software that resides on Archipelago’s EM Observe control center. EMR produces fine-scale temporal data on date, time, position, fishing gear activity and more. EM Record TM is the user interface for the vessel operator and displays a home screen where they can easily monitor the status and performance of system components.
EM Interpret TMis our comprehensive analysis tool for reviewing EM data. EMI operates on a standard PC and allows for the visualization of EM datasets to easily examine specific events in greater detail. EMI lets reviewers record observations while reviewing the data and is easily configured for the specific needs of any project. EMI was developed to increase the efficiency of the data review process. A typical fishing trip may generate hundreds of hours of data, but EMI allows reviewers to easily navigate large data sets, identify events of interest, and summarize their observations at a fraction of real time.
