Commercial fishing is a harsh environment where assets see extreme temperatures, rugged handling and the opportunity to get mixed with other fishermen’s assets while at land. RFID can provide the following benefits:
- Identification of asset ownership
- Eases inventorying process
- Identification of asset location
- Life cycle costs
- Maintenance inspection, requirements and tracking
We have developed rugged tags that withstand extended exposure to salt water and can handle the abuse seen by commercial fishing nets and lobster traps.
