Annual Awards Ceremony at the Perth Game Fishing Club

The Perth Game Fishing Club, based in Fremantle, Western Australia had its annual awards ceremony on October 18th. MaxSea is a proud sponsor of the club and our Regional Sales Manager Thibault Hua attended the event. 

The awards were held at the recently-refurbished Fremantle Sailing Club function room, overlooking the marina and Indian Ocean with truly stunningly beautiful views.

MaxSea at IceFish – the Icelandic Commercial Fishing Show

Last week, Regional Sales Manager Thibault Hua represented MaxSea at the IceFish exhibition which took place in Reykjavik. IceFish is the must-visit event of the commercial fishing industry. Here he tells us how it went.

MaxSea products were displayed at the stand of Iceland’s Furuno distributor Brimrún. Special emphasis was placed  on our PC-radar and fishing-PC sounder solutions with Furuno sensor integration. The new WASSP interface was also very successful because of the increase in productivity and time it represents for bottom mapping tasks.

MaxSea Commercial Fishing Software Installation for Namibian Fisheries Patrol Vessel

MaxSea distributor Radio Electronic CC is located in Namibia and tells us about a recent installation of the commercial fishing software MaxSea TimeZero PLOT on one of Namibia’s Fisheries Patrol vessels, AK Mungunda.

Walvis Bay, Namibia

The vessel, “Anna Kakurukaze Mungunda”, is one of two Namibian Fisheries patrol vessels, based in Walvis Bay, Namibia:

Commercial fishing vessel: Anna Kakurukaze Mungunda
Namibian Fisheries Patrol vessel, the “Anna Kakurukaze Mungunda”

She was built in 2003, is 59m in length and has a gross tonnage of 1413t.

As two of the Namibian Research vessels are already outfitted with MaxSea TimeZero installations, it was a logical choice to have the same type of system installed on this patrol vessel – for ease of sharing user data, such as PBG bathymetric data, among each other.

The installation

MaxSea TimeZero PLOT software, integrated with:

  • Standard GPS device
  • Depth, sounder
  • ARPA and AIS input

What makes this installation a little unusual is the 32-inch monitor which was used to display the commercial fishing software:
