Kiwa – Fish quota management and Fisher payments system

New Zealand is recognised as having one of the best fish quota management systems in the world. To prevent overfishing, which is now a world-wide issue, most fish species that are caught by commercial fishing companies are managed under a quota system.  That means the quantity of total fish caught is determined at the start of each fishing year, and this allowance is then shared between all commercial fishers, with each fisher only able to catch up to their maximum limit. 

The system we have developed (Kiwa) tracks all fish processed by the fishing company, and links to the processing plant software and the accounting system to provide traceability on the source of the fish until they are sold.  Kiwa also gathers sales information, and pays the fisher either based on the final sale price achieved, or on a fixed price.  Kiwa also reports the data for fish processed each month to the government agency (Ministry of Primary Industries) to ensure that the fisher stays within their quota limits.

Zest has designed and built all of the system, including the interfaces to external systems.
