Kitchener Waterloo, December 2016, FISHBUOYTM , a software platform designed to help freshwater fishermen predict when and where to fish, was one of eight companies selected, among numerous applicants, to receive $50,000 in funding to support advancement in FISHBUOY technology and use of open government data.  

"ODX Ventures and it's mandate to help companies access open data for the benefit of Canadians is right down our alley. FISHBUOY shares a similar mandate, but instead of connecting people to data, we provide a comprehensive solution that integrates real-time and forecasted environmental data to help fishermen identify trends in fish feeding behaviour.  Through an online dashboard (FISHBUOY TripPlanner) and mobile app (FISHBUOY Mobile), FISHBUOY transforms user fish-catch data and open data sources into interactive maps, graphs, photo galleries and analytical dashboards to make the process of learning and finding fish easy."

"FISHBUOY currently uses various open data sources however we plan on optimizing our systems and integrating even more data types to benefit fishermen both novice and expert.  The support provided via ODX Ventures will help us take FISHBUOY to a completely new level, making confusing data more accessible and easy to understand.  After all, our moto is "More Knowledge. More Fish"", says Martin Draeger, Founder, President FISHBUOY

Toronto, February 2016, FISHBUOYTM App and FISHBUOYTM Online will be launched at the well-known Toronto Sportsman Show during March 16-20, 2016. FISHBUOY is a new software solution to hit the market and is designed with innovative and easy-to-use features to help novice and expert fishermen identify the best times and locations to fish across North America. FISHBUOY uses a physical and biological-based approach to identify water bodies with the highest potential for fishing success using the proprietary Fishing Success Index (FSI).   Through capturing real-time water and weather data from over 15,000 monitoring stations, FISHBUOY gives fishermen the edge by helping them align their tactics to local fishing conditions.

"FISHBUOY was conceived out of necessity.  There were many times I would plan a fishing trip months in advance, spend tons of money on lures and gear, only to arrive at my destination and realize my timing was off and I had prepared for the wrong water conditions.  FISHBUOY is the solution because it integrates so many factors that experienced fishermen consider when planning their fishing trips. It provides key information about historical and real-time water and weather conditions and allows you to couple this information with your own fish data captured via FISHBUOY App. FISHBUOY also provides the platform for sharing your fish catches publicly or within your private groups so you can layer other fishermens catch data to gain more insight. Anyone serious about catching fish would benefit from FISHBUOY and you can try it for free by downloading if from the Apple Store." Martin Draeger, Founder, President, FISHBUOY
