Archipelago Launches Low-Cost Fisheries Monitoring Device. LIME To Reduce Cost-Barrier For Fisheries Monitoring and Offer BRNKL Functionality

Archipelago, a global provider of marine resource management products and services, has announced the launch of their first low-cost electronic monitoring device – LIME (Lite Integrated Monitoring Equipment). This new hardware represents an entry-level monitoring solution for fisheries looking to introduce electronic monitoring within their fleet.

Through Archipelago’s partnership with Barnacle Systems of Victoria, BC, LIME will be the first device of its kind to enable vessel owners to monitor both fishing activity as well as provide 24-hour vessel monitoring and security for their vessel. Monitoring and security is provided through the award-winning BRNKL software and mobile app that is integrated into LIME at no additional cost to LIME customers.

‘With the ongoing growth in EM, we are excited to be expanding our EM hardware lineup with the introduction of LIME to fisheries around the world,” said Archipelago President and CEO, Gord Snell. “Providing the BRNKL functionality onboard LIME will provide vessel operators 24 hour-a-day peace of mind that their vessel is safe and secure while also providing world-class fisheries monitoring capabilities. LIME is the first EM product of its kind in the world to offer this capability and we are thrilled to offer this service to our clients.”

LIME is offered in two models – indoor, for placement in a vessel’s wheelhouse or the outdoor model which can be mounted anywhere on the vessel and is IP66 rated. The unit is enabled with GPS, global cellular connectivity, digital and analog sensor inputs and is RFID capable. With a small footprint, (3” Wide x 4”Long), LIME can be mounted almost anywhere on the vessel. The included security and monitoring features include battery bank monitoring, bilge/high water alerts, and shore power monitoring at no extra-cost. Wireless security sensors can be added to vessels for a small additional cost.

“Archipelago is a global leader in electronic monitoring, and we are proud to partner with them to deliver our award-winning BRNKL product to commercial fishing vessels around the world,” said Brandon Wright, CEO of Barnacle Systems. “We have been providing security and monitoring to recreational, industrial and military vessels in over 30 countries for the last 4 years and this entry into the fisheries market is an exciting one for our team.”

The standard model of LIME will be offered at $1,499 CAD ($1,299 USD) and the outdoor model for $1,699 CAD ($1,499 USD) with a monthly data subscription starting at $59 CAD ($49 USD). Flexible pricing models will be available to reduce the upfront cost of the hardware depending on project requirements and project contract duration. LIME will begin shipping to clients March 15, 2021.
