ERS: Electronic Reporting System
Electronic catch reporting (ERS) enables better control of fishing activities, more accurate stock assessment and sustainable management of marine resources.
In addition to monitoring services, CLS now supplies fishermen with electronic reporting software and applications that are transferred to ship owners or fishing authorities by the VMS beacon. ERS reports provide governments and fishing managers with statistics that are both dynamic and reliable.
A database captures and stores the catch information and makes it available to view on board the vessel.
- saves work with respect to logging catch information
- helps plan future fishing trips
- reports mandatory information to fishing authorities electronically.
