eCatch is a digital fisheries logbook application developed by The Nature Conservancy. It provides a simple way for fishermen to collect, map and selectively share their fishing information in a private and secure manner. One difficult aspect of fisheries management is the timely collection and dissemination to support improved management. Currenly most fisheries either don't collect important data or rely on slow, outdated paper-based approaches. We developed eCatch to try and address this problem. This article describes eCatch in depth including the technical and social complexities of modernizing fisheries data sytems.
