Teem Fish Monitoring Inc. is a Canadian social enterprise focused on design and delivery of efficient, effective electronic monitoring (EM) programs. Launched in 2019 by Ecotrust Canada, we draw on Ecotrust’s expertise in fisheries policy, marine monitoring, and electronic monitoring service delivery. All our work is grounded in Ecotrust’s mission to develop innovative solutions to major economic, social and environmental threats faced by communities, resource users and First Nations.
Through our strategic partnership with Snap Information Technology (SnapIT) we are able to offer state-of-the-art monitoring hardware and software technology, and our delivery team includes SnapIT’s software developers, Artificial Intelligence (AI) developers, and electronic engineers. As a group, we have the designs to make EM an affordable option for more vessels in order to establish fisheries worldwide that support the wellbeing of human systems and ecological ones. The design and system that we offer are what we call EM2.0 and is built around AI in both data capture and analysis.
Teem Fish is a federally designated fisheries monitoring service provider, mission-focused on enabling harvesters and regulators to work together to make data-driven decisions that support a prosperous balance between economic and ecological interests. We are wholly committed to representing the interests of owner-operated and smaller-scale fish harvesters through delivery of cost-effective, convenient solutions that make it easy to capture and report reliable, unbiased, verifiable fisheries data.
Along with our mission focus, Teem Fish is recognized for its deep ecosystem understanding and technical expertise. We have been trusted to deliver EM solutions to meet unique needs of fisheries around the world since 2011. We work across various gear types in 7 fisheries worldwide, providing fully regulated EM services in both Canada and the United States.
As no two fisheries are entirely alike, Teem Fish works with local partners to create and deploy sustainable solutions tailored to each fishery’s needs. Whether the focus is catch assessment, reducing endangered animal interactions or compliance reporting, we provide unique solutions to meet all regulatory requirements. We work with fish harvesters to configure unobtrusive solutions that are just right for their boat, so they can get on fishing.
In partnership with SnapIT, we have developed affordable technology solutions, tailor-made to work in the toughest fishing conditions. SnapIT is known for high-definition image capture marine cameras; hardware and software innovations; and AI development. We equip fishing vessels with the custom hardware, software and storage technology needed to capture, analyze, deliver and store fisheries data. Our systems range from small solar-powered wireless satellite vessel tracking units to HD camera systems with 360 degree pan, tilt, and zoom capabilities, and on-board systems with remote data transmission. Our technology also includes the ability to integrate AI in both data capture and analysis to reduce data review and storage costs.
Teem Fish works to deliver affordable electronic monitoring solutions to fishing fleets of all sizes. We reduce the cost burden of fisheries monitoring by leveraging technology solutions that decrease data review and storage requirements. Whether you’re the owner operator of a single boat or a fleet of vessels, our competitive monthly pricing and flexible payment model makes our EM solutions an attractive option.
Teem Fish believes that by bringing innovation to fisheries, fish harvesters and regulators we can make decisions that lead to more fish in the water, more food on the plate and more prosperous fishing communities. Fish harvesters can be equipped and empowered to be a part of the collection of data required for the sustainable management of fisheries.
