Commercial Fishing

Digital transformation is playing a critical role in all aspects of the commercial fishing industry today. With OneWeb and AST, fishing fleets can meet their rising demands safely, securely, and sustainably. 

Big or small, we can help

Working together with OneWeb, AST provide high-speed and reliable connectivity for both commercial fishing fleets and individual vessels, which are currently only available on large vessels. The low latency service can meet data requirements such as catch tracking, activity reporting, operational and regulatory data submission. 

Keeping your commercial fishing crew connected

The low-latency connectivity allows crew members to contact friends and family just like they would be able to on land. It improves the quality of life for crew onboard, with a subsequent boost to morale and employee loyalty.  

Bespoke data management

In addition to giving crew access to their own entertainment and content, AST can help owners/captains calculate the impact of their data use to make sure they have the right connection to suit their needs. By offering in-depth visibility and control of the networks and data used by the vessel, our INTEGRA services put the control in the owner/captain’s hand via the easy-to-use My AST Portal
