DIGITAL OBSERVER SERVICES
Digital Observer Services (DOS) is a fisheries consultancy and Electronic Monitoring (EM) service provider which uses Satlink equipment (Satlink SeaTube), high definition cameras, GPS systems and other information to produce exhaustive and professional reports on the vessel’s fishing activity.
What is SeaTube?
SeaTube is a real-time monitoring and video recording system which permits fishing companies, organisations, public authorities, observation programmes, etc., to have greater control over fishing operations and activities.
The SeaTube System consists of high-definition digital cameras installed on board to monitor fishing activity, the Satlink video server (NAS/NVR), and IDP satellite data transmission equipment with preconfigured EEZ areas (used for the purpose of monitoring VMS fishing vessels).
Among other information the system enables DOS to ascertain the location of fishing activity, the nature of the catch, the fishing method, the actions taken to safeguard protected species, the mitigation measures, etc. Hence DOS can produce a complete monitoring report backed by reliable and accurate data.
