Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Marine Instruments: constant evolution of the satellite buoy for tuna fishing

Friday, November 11, 2022

In 2005, Marine Instruments made buoys with satellite communication available to the tuna sector, until then based on HF radio. The change from radio to satellite technology opened up the possibility of sharing buoys between ships and allowed the information to also be received in the shipowners' offices.

Four years later, the company became the first to introduce an acoustic transducer inside the buoy. Thus, the satellite buoy began to give information about the presence or not of fish and in what quantity to optimize the fishing routes that they had been doing up to that moment.
