What We Do
We offer means to track fishing equipment at a cost effective & sustainable rates.
Our able team work around the clock to ensure our clients get the best services.
The ordinary fishermen incur massive losses over loss of fishing equipment at sea.
We have a product (Blix) that offers means to track fishing equipment for these fisherman at highly cost effective & sustainable rates. BLIX is a Long Range Radio gadget that allows fishermen to keep tabs of their fishing gear.
The gadget is designed to tether with the fishing gear, and is water & dust proof, and is designed to recharge using currents or solar. It is also extremely energy efficient.
The solution also comprises a Mobile App that aid fishermen to keep track of their equipment. The BLIX device will also deploy sensors that will monitor currents, sea surface temperatures, oxygen content & salinity level. This data can be valuable for research institutions and marine conservation institutions, who can have commercial arrangements with us.
When fishermen lose gear, the ocean acts like a dump site for their gear.
BLIX not only reduces ocean waste from loss of this gear, but will also benefit fishermen economically, enabling them to maintain better livelihoods.
It impacts the oceans as well as the communities around them positively.
There are a number of areas around Mombasa and the Coastal Areas of Kenya that we have access to some fishermen. Below are the stats for some of the fishermen we have engaged so far:
- Mombasa - Old Town Area - 20 fishing boats.
- Shimoni Area (South Coast) - 100 fishing boats.
- Vanga Area (South Coast) - 100 fishing boats.
- Kilifi Area (North Coast) - 50 fishing boats.
- Watamu Area (North Coast) - 50 fishing boats.
- Malindi Area - 100 fishing boats.
- Lamu Area - 150 to 200 fishing boats.
This data is only for Coastal Kenya. Comprehensively there is interest from different parts of the country. This fact also points to the fact that it can scale in developing markets outside of Kenya.
