Fisherman Catching Crabs on Workboat

“Almost every one of us has had a friend or family member lost at sea. A beacon could have prevented that disaster. That’s why we trust fellow crew members and McMurdo with our lives.”

– Fishing Boat Captain

 

Today, fishing and workboat companies globally trust McMurdo products to stay connected and safe often in highly hazardous, dangerous conditions.  Whether it’s PRISMA Connect (one of the world’s first web-based fleet management software combining mapping and two-way messaging), AIS Man Overboard devices (enhancing safety in treacherous waters) or VMS communications systems, McMurdo can develop standard or customized solutions for the fishing and workboat industry.

Several of the largest commercial fisheries (including Atlantic Capes Fisheries, Irish Fisheries), workboat companies (such as Kirby Inland Marine and Marquette Transportation) and fishing authorities (the likes of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Indonesia Ministry of Marine Affairs & Fisheries and NOAA) trust McMurdo to improve fleet-wide communications, streamline operational efficiencies and increase crew safety.

For tomorrow, we are developing new, innovative fishing and workboat solutions all with McMurdo technology at its core.
