Deckhand is an electronic logbook application that empowers fishermen to collect data for themselves and for the regulators that require mandatory electronic trip reporting.
You’ll find Deckhand in the Apple App Store®. Search for “Deckhand Pro” to find the latest release designed solely for commercial use. Deckhand runs on the Apple iPad® with Wi-Fi + Cellular capability, (though a cellular plan is not necessarily required).
Running on the Apple iPad, Deckhand seamlessly replaces paper logbooks as the most comprehensive electronic logbook solution entering the market today. You can use Deckhand to collect, store and feed back your proprietary fishing data to help inform critical business decision making. In addition, when integrated with the fishery regulator in your area, Deckhand sends the data required for electronic reporting via WiFi, cellular, or satellite* — whichever is available and convenient at the time.
*Satellite connectivity currently available in New Zealand fisheries only.
If you are a vessel cooperative, trade association, or other type of fishermen’s organization, Deckhand™ Pro is a powerful tool for your membership.
Keep your constituents up-to-date with the latest electronic reporting standard. Tailor Deckhand™ Pro to suit your organization’s needs using our own Catchflow™ workflow customization engine. Or, simply serve as the conduit for connecting your membership with a superior, redefined logbook.

Take it fishing! Deckhand is unique in that it “fishes with you.” You can tally individual hauls, tows, traps, strings, as you go; or, you can wait to input any data until you wish to submit the eVTR. Whether you want to interact with it a lot or hardly at all, Deckhand adjusts to the way you fish and want to work.
Availability is subject to change.

Launch date will be announced on www.deckhandlogbook.com as well as through other platforms.
