It is also among the top price-sensitive markets to operate in. That’s why fishing companies worldwide are investing in advanced applications and digital tools to keep them connected to onshore activities.

Fisheries are increasingly dependent on applications that require reliable, high-speed internet access to track onshore deliveries in real-time, conduct remote diagnostics, assess the latest weather data to calculate the best route, optimize fuel consumption, and improve product traceability.

Whether you need connectivity to enable crew safety and welfare, vessel monitoring, or continuous catch reporting for regulatory requirements, fishing operations need always-available bandwidth that can enable them to act on insights and realize efficiencies. Without reliable connectivity, fisheries can experience:
