The FAO Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA) requires member states to implement robust port state measures to block the flow of IUU-caught fish into national and international markets.
Fisheries Technologies offers a simple yet powerful, cost effective and efficient PSMA solution supporting the full PSMA value chain from a single vessel to reporting to the FAO Global Record. The PSMA tool ensures port managers and personnel in each port always has the best overview possible for arrivals and departures for both local and foreign vessels.
The system supports the full value chain and manages the collaboration between vessels, ports, flag states and others to block the flow of IUU-caught fish into national and international markets.
As a cloud solution the PSMA offers high adaptability and the system available from any computer, any device, anytime and anywhere. The system is highly configurable, multilingual, easy to use and designed with everyday language and user tips built right in. The PSMA solution may significantly help lowering initial investment cost and technical barriers otherwise imposed resulting in much faster delivery of validated data into Global Record. This, among other things, creates robustness and helps lowering the learning curve and set-up costs.
The system is fully FAO Global Record compatible. Data exchange to the Global Record is encapsulated and handled in the PSMA data sharing layer and a high level of configuration allows port states to configure reporting contents and delivery schedules.
