A smartphone app focusing on measuring and recording fish weights.
Fish Weight is a smartphone app designed for fishermen by fishermen. The app allows fishing enthusiasts to measure and weigh each fish as well as take a picture of their most impressive catches. Fishermen can then release the fish without harming it – and still have proof of their catch. Fishermen can still participate in their favorite pastime, while the fishing stock remains healthy and sustainable for future generations.
Fishing is an addictive pastime. It’s relaxing and there’s no feeling quite like reeling in a big fish.
There’s just one problem. How do you prove that your catch really was impressive, and not just a fish story?
Sport fishermen no longer kill fish. They instead release them, so they don’t have the fish as physical proof.
As for taking manual measurements, current methods make it inconvenient and difficult to measure a live fish.
Fish Weight provides fishermen with a smartphone app that they can use to prove the weight of the fish they catch and release. Our app includes high quality pictures of each fish species, so fishermen can verify the species of fish they have caught.
Some fishermen have been known to tell “fish stories,” so there has to be a way for fishing fans to prove the weight of their catch. Fish Weight is the first app that can do this.
Fish Weight has developed an app that allows fishermen to accurately record the weight of each fish they catch – and take a picture of it before releasing it back into the wild.
Right now, we are trying to increase the accuracy of Fish Weight to provide an even better user experience. We are also developing a social platform to connect fisherman around the world, allowing them to identify species of fish and find the best fishing spots worldwide.
The app allows fishermen to release fish – without harming them – to ensure healthy fish stock for future generations. Fish Weight promotes sustainable sport fishing.
At its core, our smartphone app is a measuring app. It can measure weights and lengths by taking pictures. Our patented technology works together with smartphones to accurately measure and record the size of each catch.
