With over 20 years of experience of working with governments and agencies around the world, BigOceanData is the market-leader in monitoring fishing vessels and ensuring compliance with quotas and regulations whilst helping deter Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) fishing activity.

Data Sources

We can cooperatively track the position of fishing vessels with FleetBroadBand (FBB), Argos-CLS, Inmarsat-C, Iridium, VSAT and GSM/GPRS as well as hybrid solutions. Noon Report integration is also available. All sources can be integrated with AIS to best coverage available.

Zone and EEZ Management

Zones can be of any shape, and once a vessel has been assigned to a zone/geofence, BigOceanData will automatically record an entry or exit and alert the user.
Vessel speed and manoeuvring are monitored within a zone to indicate fishing/non-fishing status.

Fisheries Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS)


Automatic alerts are triggered by specific events such as overdue position report, panic button press, device tampering or geofence incursion.

International Regulations

BigOceanData complies with international regulations for data exchange between countries and Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMOs). VMS data is exchanged in the North Atlantic Format (NAF) over HTTPS as standard and can be configured to be via FLUX (Fisheries Language for Universal Exchange).

Catch Reporting

BigOceanData can be used as part of a catch verification system to track fish from the moment they are caught to their landing and, once ashore, recording sales and authenticating the product source.
