Fast and reliable fisheries data collected by fishermen, seafood businesses, NGOs, and government agencies on any device, any where around the world.
NEW US > OLD US
Thanks for visiting our website. You'll notice that things look and sound a little different around here. We're reorganizing ourselves from marine technology consultants to re-emerge as the leading provider of technology products that address seafood trade accountability, profitability, and traceability at sea, across the supply chain.
Expect these developments to make their debut in 2016, and in the meantime, take a sneak peak at what the Point 97 reboot includes.
Stay up-to-date on our progress
FISHERIES MONITORING 2.0
Unlock the technological capacity to collect real- to near-time fisheries data with Point 97 mobile applications, databases, and dashboards. Our technology is designed to capture, receive, and transmit species, catch location, catch date, gear type, vessel name, certification, and any other required information between the point of landing to point of first sale.
An onboard mobile app for use by fishermen at-sea to enable business tracking for increased profitability and communication with seafood buyers to simplify the purchasing process. Coming soon.
A digital data collection tool for use by enumerators onshore. Collected data can be uploaded instantly or stored offline until a connection is detected in areas with limited connectivity. Learn more >>
THE FUTURE OF DATA WITH COMPUTER VISION
Today we rely on people to generate data using mobile devices that are widely available across the world. We are actively developing our data capture and management tools of tomorrow with computer vision, sensor, and laser technology to improve the accuracy, efficiency, and cost of fisheries data collection and monitoring.
When used on their own or integrated together as a complete system, our products serve as a back-end data collection component that is interoperable with consumer facing traceability platforms.
After a decade of pushing the frontier of ocean planning decision support tools as Ecotrust's non-profit, Marine Consulting Initiative, in August 2013 Point 97 spun off as a for-purpose tech company and reorganized our work towards greater scale and impact. With successes and lessons learned over the past 3 years, the latest chapter of Point 97 is rebooting to bring global solutions and technology that facilitates the collection of trusted and more reliable data for fisheries management, seafood trade accountability, profitability, and traceability at sea, at the docks, and in the markets.
