BigOceanData has been tracking and managing vessels at sea since the advent of Inmarsat-C tracking technology in the early 1990’s.  In those days the company traded as BlueFinger Limited and was best known as one of the world’s leading suppliers of Fisheries Vessel Monitoring Systems (FVMS) with more than

20 government clients scattered around the globe. BigOceanData is now best known for its AIS-based vessel fleet tracking services but FVMS remains one of the company’s core capabilities both from a government perspective (specialist shore-based monitoring centres) and vessel-side (dedicated Inmarsat and Iridium tracking services). More than a dozen clients around the world use BigOceanData services to monitor their licensed fisherman or to ensure compliance with local licensing conditions.

The BigOceanData online portal is designed to ensure that data privacy is assured such that governments can be confident in using the platform for FVMS applications.  On those occasions when data is required to remain ’in-country’ a data server can be deployed locally to suit.

In just the last 2 months fishery authorities in South Africa, Mauritius and the Ascension Islands have signed contracts for VMS solutions; so why not do the same and buy your FVMS solution from BigOceanData?
