About FishReg

FishReg.net is intended as a convenient, easy and inexpensive tool to send the catches of fishing tourists to Directorate of Fisheries.
It is intended to make the collection of catches and sending of reports as fast as possible.

Methods of catch registration:

The interfaces are available in multiple languages, fishreg-web in english, german and norwegian and fishreg-app/fishreg-terminal in English, German, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Czech, Polish, Russian and Lithuanian.
The translation into German, English and Norwegian are done manually, Norwegian content may contain parts that are in English.
Translations into other languages is mostly done using automated translation technology, supplemented with some manual translation (fish species i.e.).

Other features

Functionality has been given priority over design.

Workflow of registration, processing and sending

Registered catches will be stored on the FishReg servers until the customers stay is over. Only after the stay can all trips be combined into a single report and sent to the Directorate of Fisheries.

Lowest effort

To keep your workload to a minimum you can generate a list containing 500 codes.
Each of these codes can be used by a guest to define the timeperiod of his stay and register catches.
In combination with the option to automatically send reports after they have been completed, the effort required of you is minimal.

The main interface for companies

The main interface offers management of: Customer stays, reports, boats, address books, toll receipts for customers, quarterly and yearly reports of sent reports for companies.

You can check out the demo system at https://demo.fishreg.net.

Only basic information is needed to get started. If you want you can keep you customers completely anonymous to the system.

Manage stays

Generate Codes

To save even more time you can generate a list of codes.
When a guest uses a code on the list, he can specify the timespan of his day on his own
In combination with the option to auto send reports this will reduce the amount of time you need to spend to an absolute minimum.

The web app for customers

Customers can use their own devices (mobile phones, tablets, laptops) to digitally register their catches using their browser.

A customer is given a unique code by the company. When he uses his browser to go to https://fishreg.net he can enter this code to log in. No personal infomation is gathered, requested, or saved.

Afterwards he will be presented with a simple interface to enter his catches of the day. There is one page per day and incrementing/decrementing the amount caught fishes for the day is achieved by clicking the respective button.

To help your guests get started registering their catches, you can print out and hand them one of the following booklets:

Creation of stay

If a guest has entered a code from a code-list he needs to specify the timespan of his stay:

Select boat (if more than one boat available for stay)

Enter catch of the day

The terminal app

To allow customers to enter their catches digitally without using their own devices a central system can be provided (Tablet, PC, Mac or Laptop are viable options).

That system will present the user with a boat selection, followed by the interface to enter the catches of the day. Not unsimilar to the web app.

The price is 1000NOK per year and additionally 50NOK per boat per year. A company with 2 boats therefore has to pay 1100NOK per year, a company with 10 boats has to pay 1500NOK per year. The price is excluding VAT. VAT will be stated on the invoice for german companies. Companies outside Germany will receive an invoice stating that they have to pay the taxes in their country.

The accounting period is one season. (Please refer to terms and conditions for detailed information).

The amount of boats is to be seen as an average for all regularly rentable boats. You don't have to pay for spare boats. If you regularly rent out 10 boats and keep 2 boats as spare, you have to pay for 10 boats.

If you buy another boat during a year you will only have to pay for it in the following year.

A detailed description can be found in the terms and conditions.
