NAVIGATION, FISH-FINDING AND FISH-CATCHING SIMULATOR

K-Sim Fishery is a state-of-the-art fishery simulator especially made for use in education and training of students and crew.  With the main purpose of building knowledge, skills and attitudes promoting safety, economy and sustainability in fishery, the simulator provides training in maneuvering a fishing vessel and using gear and equipment for fish-finding and fish-catching .

 

MEETING THE INDUSTRY’S TRAINING REQUIREMENTS

The K-Sim Fishery simulator meets the new STCW-F requirements for fishery training and the DNV’s certification standards. The system provides high-end simulation of various types of fishing vessels, and can be equipped with customized instruments and fishing gear according your exact training requirement. In addition to this, the system is flexible and can be delivered from desktop to a full mission ship’s bridge system. The choice is yours. We are proud that K-Sim Fishery has got the prestigious Safety4Sea Training award and that it provides the exact type of training the fishermen need in order to build competence and safely operating a fishing vessel in the often harsh conditions. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

With K-Sim Fishery students are able to perform fishery exercises where they train on utilizing the vessel’s equipment, optimize working hours and fuel consumption. They can learn how to choose the best routes and vessel position, and carry out appropriate maneuvers to control the fishing gear to ensure quantity and quality of the catch. The system allows students to familiarize and operate different types of fishing gear, while building skills in different fishing techniques and knowledge about the different fish species behavior. Further, they will learn how to plan a fishing operation, find, catch, and safely and efficiently store the fish, whilst monitoring vessel stability during the loading process.

THE BENEFITS OF K-SIM FISHERY

  • Enables competence building to improve safety and economy in fishing
  • Meets STCW-F and DNV GL’s (class A) training requirements
  • Full instructor control of simulated exercise incl. replay and assessment
  • Realistic training scenarios through advanced simulation of vessel- and equipment behaviour in a realistic hydrodynamic, physical and visual environment.
  • Training efficiency in purse seine, trawl and long line operations
  • Realistic fishfinding training by integration of real market leading Simrad fishing gear, such as: single- and split beam Echo Sounders and Omni Directional Sonars.
  • Possibilities to expand and re-configure the system to adapt to changing training needs
  • Familiarising and training of Catch Monitoring System

A COMPLETE SYSTEM TO BUILD COMPETENCE

K-Sim Fishery is designed as a fishing vessel bridge with all necessary bridge and navigation equipment for fish finding and catching, including winches for handling fishing equipment such as purse seine, trawl and long line. Both the vessel and equipment behave as in real-life due to the simulator’s advanced physical engine. Integrated with Simrad real fishery echo sounders, sonars and catch monitoring systems, K-Sim Fishery will form a complete system for the education and competence development of fishing vessel crew.

Customer statement

The investment in the new K-Sim Fishery simulator is a very important contribution for us. It enables us to build on the future of fishing, In addition to education in safe and efficient navigation and ship handling for fishing, practice on the simulator’s search and catch instrumentation will help both new and veteran fishermen perform better. The simulator will also enable increased competence and career progression for the crew who wish to further develop skills in navigation and in new and different fishing methods to meet today’s higher standards of fish quality.
