As a supervisor, you will be actively guiding, assessing and supervising the fishers using our #DemiLaut’s app, to help traditional fishers to process data of their daily catches with you, so we could start a transparent, traceable and trackable sustainable fishing operation amongst the coastal fishers too. You would be part of the solution, engaging and empowering the fishers to empathise and evaluate the process and the potential returns from doing so.
It takes time to change mindsets, and to enjoy the possibilities of traditional fishers harvesting data to understand their impacts on the biodiversity of stocks in the ocean and the impact of climate change on the ocean, we all need to be together continuously ensuring that the fishers and those around us could identify with these impacts. And the best way to do so, is by doing it with the fishers themselves.
And that is how you are making the difference as a changemaker!
So you’re selected to be in the pilot. You’re the rare ones, completed the modules and passionate to be part of the change! Be proud of your work, now that you’re here. You’ve gotten through the studies of traditional fisheries and it’s complexity, the needs for innovation, data science, sustainability and its application, and now you’re experiencing how the product could help us scale our effort up together. You’re in an innovative space, and you’ll continue to grow with these wisdoms in mind.
Let’s begin with managing your account.
So, upon submitting the form sent to you, you would be receiving you login details to begin using the app and also the APK itself to install in your phone, your computer and also on the fishers’ phone you’re working with.
18.104.22.168 Onboarding Fishers
Now that you have logged in, you should be able to engage with fishers and onboard them onto their version of the app. You would want to consider the time you have to spend with the fishers to complete their registration.
If you don’t have much time, you could fill in only required details and the rest of details could be amend later on.
22.214.171.124 Managing Fishers
The unique feature of DemiLaut’s app is that as a supervisor, you could make changes to the fishers’ accounts and reports on-the-go, just in case the fishers you’re working with requires some help on the reporting and you’re not on site.
126.96.36.199 Catch of the Day operation
Fishers would go on daily trips to catch fish and most of the fisher would use traditional means to log their catches or sometimes no logs at all. These information could actually help you or the fishers to market their products better and also help to track and trace the fish caught by fishers for governance. Through all our collective efforts, we could someday identify with accuracy the rates of fish caught and compare it to the rates of fish spawned (growth from eggs).
Here you would learn on what are the steps to log the catch of the day for each individual fishers.
Try and test the app function before you start to engage with the fishers. Explore the app and prepare to make changes to records you have registered or tested. The best practise is to keep a clean and transparent data, and if there are any challenges feel free to inform us via the button below.
1. Be mindful of your data and accounts, a 'dirty' data dilutes the accuracy and consistency of the data collected and may affect our outcome
