Polar Fishing Gear of Iceland and SINERGIA SRL of Mar del Plata, Argentina will now offer the complete line of Notus Electronics Ltd.’s (Notus) net monitoring products through its extensive global dealer network. Both partnerships for Notus are considered significant moves.
Polar Fishing Gear is an innovative company specialized in design, contracting and sale of high efficient trawl doors suitable for bottom, semi-pelagic and pelagic fishing. They have been involved in trawl doors building, developing, sales and marketing for almost 40 years. This experience makes the relationship with Notus a natural fit. The company has the expertise to help Notus customers realize the full benefit of the Notus product line.
Hugo A OLMOS of Argentina has past experience at sea. Since 1999 he has represented Icelandic and Norwegian companies related to the commercial fishing industry. Throughout the years he has gained significant experience with wireless sensor technology. Finding the right partner in Argentina has been a 2013 goal for Notus, and the experience of SINERGIA SRL makes them a perfect Notus fit.
Notus Electronics Ltd. (Notus) has been developing wireless net monitoring sensors for trawlers and seiners for the past 20 years. Establishing relationships with Atli and Hugo for sales and services was a strategic move for Notus. This will allow for support and sales for increasing market penetration of both the Trawlmaster and Seinemaster products in the Icelandic and Argentinian areas.
The Trawlmaster is a complete net monitoring system for trawlers. The system offers over 24 sensors, monitoring doorspread, distance, catch, temperature, headline height, bottom contact, Angle, and trawl door height. The Seinemaster monitors the depth, sink rate, temperature and alignment of the seine. The Captain knows exactly when the seine is around the fish and also avoids costly hookups on the bottom.
