What is SeaTube?

1. Real-time monitoring and recording system

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.

2. High-definition digital cameras

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).

3. Complete monitoring report

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.
