Hayduk and the digital transformation in the fishing industry

As a fisherman of birth and as an entrepreneur dedicated to this area, I have seen in recent years that the digital transformation of our Peruvian industry is an irreversible process that is already underway. Peru´s fishing sector is experiencing important changes generated by the incorporation of new technologies that impact both the institutions that regulate the industry and the companies themselves.

In the first case, the government agencies apply different sophisticated solutions for the supervision of the entire sector. The main exponent of this digital transformation in the regulatory entities is the Ministry of Production, which works with information collected in real time by a satellite network that monitors the activities of fishing vessels on our coast. It is with the data provided by these tools that prohibition zones are often determined and possible sanctions are imposed.

For fishing companies, if we want to remain competitive, the access and implementation of new technologies is urgent and must be immediate, because all production processes, whether large or small, are carried out with an infrastructure that is necessary to keep at the forefront. This innovation is especially important when we refer to the commercialization of fishmeal and fish oil, mature businesses for this kind of companies.

As director and founder of a company with a long fishing tradition, I know all the demands of this highly competitive market, and in our case the benefits of digital transformation are directly perceived in the fulfillment of corporate objectives, aimed at managing under the highest quality standards and to the satisfaction of all our customers with products that meet their specific needs.

To give an example of the above, within the framework of this process, Hayduk has implemented a satellite links system based on autotracking antennas that keep our vessels interconnected at any point of the sea. This allows us to send and receive critical information in real time that is processed in our control modules to formulate a better corporate decision-making scheme and substantially improve the working environment of the crew, which today can communicate permanently with their families. This great step has made us the first fishery in Peru to have this technology.

In this way, connectivity becomes the basis of all projects related to technology that we will apply in the future. It will eventually be complemented by a video analytic system that will allow the recording of maneuvers performed on the boats and the sending of these images to our fleet control center to maximize safe behavior on board; all this, again, in real time.

The sector is changing and this also forces us to change. This evolution is a very positive symptom because, although it tells us that the demands and challenges are greater, it shows us that the peaks are higher than we thought. Our evolution as a company can not ignore this change, and both Hayduk and the entire industry have an obligation to adopt the new technologies for fishing that are shaping the operations of tomorrow.

Finally, we talk about innovating to be more efficient and competitive, we talk about innovating to be better.
