Find more fish, faster
Imagine combining your sea captain's knowledge and intuition with satellite-based intelligence. Using daily data on ocean conditions to find the closest, most productive fishing grounds. Cutting search time and saving fuel. Since 1997, our SeaStar fish finding maps have given pelagic fishing operations the tools they need for more efficient purse seining, long-lining and trolling. Our ocean color imagery is delivered directly to the vessel at sea. It’s easy to manipulate map layers and spot trends while also maintaining accurate catch records for future analysis.
A tuna purse seiner goes to sea with sister vessels reporting poor catches. The ship leverages SeaStar intelligence to zero in on the richest fishing grounds.
A vessel captain logs a record catch of mackerel using InsightExplorer. He sorts and filters the map layers using today's variables and forecasts a promising location for the next day.
InsightExplorer gives captains the tools they need to easily document their catch data and submit it with the click of a button. Without Insight Explorer, fleet managers lack timely catch data from 20+ vessels, delaying reports to regulatory agencies.
Color-coded map layers show sea temperatures and currents, plankton concentrations, as well as salinity and thermocline depth estimates.
Data includes a comprehensive weather report and a summary of our oceanographic analyses and recommendations.
The MasterCast™ tool allows you to manipulate, filter, and sort data.
