Innomar’s fishing traps allows the fishermen to execute controlled fishing with minimized risk of unwanted bycatch such as mammals or seabirds.

 

Fishery Tools

We base our business model on our own research and development. All research is done in cooperation with world-leading scientists and institutes: Institute of Norwegian Marine Research, NOFIMA, Kongsberg Maritime and Merinov Institute in Québec. Together we are developing methods for making fisheries sustainable and tools for sensoring and tracking. The result of our research will be produced and distributed to the fishing industry where applicable.

SMART BUOYS

The smart buyos gives the fishermen an opportunity to survey the position of his fishing gear. In combination with our software, Digicatch, the buoys are “smart” and have lots of useful features. One of these features will send a push warning to the fisherman’s mobile phone or his onboard navigation system if there is something to be aware of. For example, if it is overdue for the gear to be harvested or simply that it is moving out of position. This way, the fisherman can take actions to prevent the loss of his gear.

FISHING GEAR

Innomar’s fishing traps allows the fishermen to execute controlled fishing with minimized risk of unwanted bycatch such as mammals or seabirds. Some traps are even designed for targeted fishing of specific species, such as halibut. The traps are available in various sizes, from smaller traps that are single person operated to very large traps for industrial fisheries.

STATIONAIRY TRAPS

Our stationary trap concept is a new high tech fishing technology that will work passively and autonomously. The traps may be placed near fish farms, offshore wind power installations or other vulnerable areas. This technology is an important contribution to make fisheries and fish farms more sustainable.

WE CREATE VALUE

We create value by developing new tools for sustainable fishing. Better quality, safety and less environmental impact increases value throughout the supply chain, from catch to plate.

TRAP HANDLING GEAR

Innomar develops handling gear for easy deployment and retrieval of the fishing traps. These handling gears can be adapted and fitted to most conventional fishing vessels.

TRAP TECHNOLOGY

Innomars trap technology consist of smart fishing traps produced in various sizes for both the professional market and the leisure market. The traps are designed for easy transportation, stackable and easy to use. The main goal with our traps is to meet the demand for responsible fishing with less environmental footprint and a better resource management. The technology is patented.

Furthermore we are developing sensor technology for catch monitoing and trap surveillance, sending wireless information of the catch to the surface and further to a cloud base. This enables  the fisherman to monitor his catch on a mobile device hence optimize the fishing operation.

The projects are supported by the Norwegian Research Council, EIC green deal, The Norwegian Directorate of Fishery and Innovation Norway.
