Fishing Simulators

The simulator gives training in the use of fish detection and navigation equipment and in the operation of fishing vessels engaged in trawling, purse seine and long line fishing methods.
Recently, Twin-Rigging & Bottom Seining has been added to the fishing simulation.
Training in navigation and collision avoidance using radar can also be given.

The students can practise locating fish shoals using sonar and echo sounders, shooting and hauling the fishing gear. If done correctly a catch total will be shown.
