What is FISHBUOY Platform?

FISHBUOY Platform decision support system


FISHBUOY Mobile and FISHBUOY TripPlanner are software solutions designed to help fishermen determine when and where to fish.  FISHBUOY uses a science-based approach that predicts which locations have the optimal conditions, using historical and real-time water, weather and fish biology.


  • Improve Fishing Success

    Fishermen are always looking for the edge and invest a great deal of time and money finding the secret to catching more fish.  The reality is, fish biology already tells us what they want.  FISHBUOY software help you tune in.

  • Build Your Knowledge

    Fishermen often rely on word-of-mouth and chatter from forums to determine fishing conditions.  Why not build your own knowledge?  FISHBUOY focuses on the science behind fishing and provides you with the tools to make your own educated decisions.

  • Understanding of Fish Biology

    Not all fishermen understand the biological triggers for each fish species. FISHBUOY offers features to build your knowledge, or simply use the Fishing Success Index (FSI) that pulls from our comprehensive fish biology database.

  • Fish and Hydrology

    Not all fishermen understand the significant influence water conditions have on catching fish.  FISHBUOY helps fishermen correlate the relationship between water, fish catch and location to help with future planning.

  • Fishing Network

    People new to fishing, or fishermen new to a region, do not have the connections to learn about fishing. FISHBUOY offers mapping and social networking features to help you.

Fishing Business.

FISHBUOY Platform helps fishing retailers, lodges and NGO's communicate their valuable products and services to the fishing community.  FISHBUOY Platform is customizable to integrate with other big-data systems to increase the number of impressions and convert interest into sales or funding.


  • Fishing Ads

    We know it's all about visibility to get customers to your store.  We love fishing as much as you do and know how important it is to align your products and services to the needs of fishermen.  FISHBUOY offers dvertising opportunities via In-App ads, online ads, and targetted marketing campaigns.

  • FISHBUOY Lodge

    Want your own FISHBUOY Website? FISHBUOY Lodge can be built directly into your website.  Every customer's fish catch is automatically loaded onto your website so you don't need to do this manually anymore.  Each photo can be viewed on a map to show the location where customers catch fish.  (See FISHBUOY Lodge)

  • In-Store Virtual Guide

    FISHBUOY Virtual Guide connects with your PMS to FISHBUOY's local map and fishing conditions.  When your customers come into the store, they can search their local fishing spot, determine weather and water conditions, and FISHBUOY Virtual Guide will suggest the best baits to buy.  It's like having a Fishing Pro in your aisles! (contact us for details)

  • Strategic Partnerships

    If you love fishing as much as we do, and your business caters to helping fishermen become more successful, then it might be worth a chat!  We offer co-marketing opportunities for companies aligned to our goals.

Fisheries Agencies.

See where people are catching fish on a map, identify species and relative size and health, capture water and weather data and much more. Email us to inquire!

  • Fishermen Input

    Fishermen are out there catching fish every day. Why not tap into their knowledge and experience? FISHBUOY App captures and stores fish data onto robust, big-data servers that can be shared to fisheries agencies to support improving the fishery.

  • Invasive Species Detection

    Fisheries agencies benefit from early and real-time warnings of invasive species through fish photos uploaded to FISHBUOY servers daily.

  • Creel Sampling Programs

    Conducting important creel surveys is critical to managing a sustainable fishery.  FISHBUOY Platform supplements creel surveys by providing real-time data about fishermen catches using a cost-effective, community-driven approach.

  • Spawning Habitat

    Geomorphology dictates how and when rivers change and fisheries agencies need to know.  These changes can directly impact locations of spawning grounds and the success of fish hatches.  FISHBUOY App captures spatial and temporal information that supplement fisheries field studies to provide early warnings.
