ONBOARD application
Monday, 25 November 2019 11:42

OnBoard app is one of the SPC-developed E-Reporting tools suite. It is available on Android and Windows 10 operating systems. It is available in English, French, Chinese Traditional and Chinese Simplified. 

It is used to collect logsheet data onboard longline vessels fishing in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean. Electronic logsheet data consist of listing the daily activities undertaken by the vessel, including the position and start time of each activity. For fishing set activities, the vessel captain provides an exhaustive list of fish caught each day (retained and discarded) as well as information on the fishing effort (number of hooks used and hooks between floats).

As with the rest of the app suite, OnBoard can then remotely send data to the master cloud based system TUFMAN2. Once in the system, the data can be viewed and/or edited by fisheries officers from Pacific Island countries, in near real-time

TAILS application
Monday, 25 November 2019 11:42

Tails is a smartphone and tablet application that allows coastal fisheries staff to easily collect tuna and reef fish catch information from small-scale fishers in remote locations and send it instantly back to the main office for analysis, even when internet connectivity is limited. This technology eliminates the need for costly and time consuming delays in sending paper-based data from outer islands to the central fisheries office to help pacific countries monitor and manage their artisanal tuna catch with today’s data, not last year’s data.

ONSHORE application
Monday, 25 November 2019 11:42

OnShore is one of the tablet applications of the SPC-developed suite of e-Reporting tools.

It is used to collect port sampling data from commercial vessels fishing in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean.

In some countries, when a vessel comes into port to offload its catch, a sampling* of the fishes retained is made by port officers on shore. SPC has designed OnShore as an efficient solution to replace port sampling paper forms.

DORADO online reporting system
Monday, 25 November 2019 11:42

Dorado is a secured online reporting tool, allowing its registered users to browse through and run more than 70 predefined reports.

It allows to query 2 sources of data: logbook data and Observer data, for purse seine and longline fishing gear types.

The output of these report can be viewed online as table, grap or maps. But it can also be exported to a CSV file for further analysis.

It includes reports for regional reporting obligations, but also some data quality ones that enable users to fix data quality issues.

This tool is widely used by all SPC Member countries.


Catch and Effort Query System (CES)
Tuesday, 12 October 2010 11:27

The Catch and Effort Query System (CES) is a menu-driven system that interfaces which allows member countries to extract summaries of operational logsheet data, aggregate public-domain catch and effort data, and annual catch estimates.
The CES system also has a comprehensive mapping sub-system (based on Mapinfo engine) which allows users to produce maps of catch, effort and CPUE (catch per unit effort) using numerous parameter categories.  CES is commonly used to produce tables, graphs and maps for member-country National Fisheries Reports
