VSTEP is getting ready to release the NAUTIS Fishing module. This new addition for training onboard fishing vessels will help fishermen (in training) strengthen their skills in fishing scenarios. Trainees will be able to engage in all aspects such as searching, catching and handling of fish, and become more proficient in vessel maneuvering.

The NAUTIS Fishing Module will let trainees train in realistic scenarios and gain a better understanding of modern fishing methods. Trainees will be able to operate an array of fishing vessels, including a stern trawler, a long liner and jigging vessels. The ability to train purse seine, pelagic and pair trawling, long lining and jigging will also be included in the module so future fishermen will be better prepared to react in different environments and weather conditions. This new module will help promote sustainable fishing practices and safety in the industry.
