The EM Observe control center product line has been the heart of our EM system for the last 15 years with multiple upgraded product lines and advancements., It records data securely, and monitors 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.
Suitable for anything from small inshore fishing boats to large pelagic vessels, the Archipelago® EM Observe™ v5.0 electronic monitoring system includes a GPS receiver, multiple equipment sensors, and up to eight digital video cameras, all linked to an onboard control centre.
Equipped with Archipelago’s EM Record™ data logging software, this monitoring system manages and logs fishing activity data, while providing wheelhouse crew with a real-time view of key fishing activities on deck. As part of an integrated fishery-management program, this advanced technology provides the tools to create a clear and accurate profile of all fishing activity at sea.
The Archipelago® EM Observe™ v5.0 electronic monitoring system is Ideal for vessels where an onboard observer would be too costly or impractical, the EM Observe™ electronic monitoring system offers a versatile and cost-effective alternative. Quiet, compact, and reliable, each EM Observe™ system incorporates the highest-quality components, including rugged, weatherproof video cameras, GPS, uninterruptable power supply, and equipment sensors for monitoring activity like hydraulic pressure and drum rotation.
The control centre monitors equipment status, and automatically records data anytime fishing activity is detected. All video, sensor, and GPS data is recorded securely to a portable hard drive, where it can be retrieved for review and interpretation once the vessel returns to port. An option to encrypt fishing activity data ensures that all information remains safe and secure.

LIME(Lite Integrated Monitoring Equipment)
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.
EM Interpret (EMI)TM Monitoring Software
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.
Marine ObserveTM Monitoring System
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.
