Cook Islands introduce mobile app Tails to record and manage fish catches

A mobile phone application that helps record small-scale fish catches was launched this month by the Cook Islands.

The launch adds this self-governing group of islands to the wider network of Pacific island countries that collect these data to manage fish resources.

Dubbed Tails and developed by the New Caledonia-based Pacific Community, the app allows fisheries officers to use mobile phones or tablets to collect data from small fishermen — on details including boat type, catch size and fish species — even when there is no Internet connection.
