Abstract: All EU fishing vessels above 10m length are supposed to fill in fisheries logbooks. In the near future these logbooks will be replaced by electronic forms. Although this replacement is straight forward for large vessels (>15m) that can keep on board PCs and other electronic devices, it is more difficult for small vessels (<15m) that don't have the space and the power supply for this purpose. Other solutions based on handheld devices should be envisaged. However non of the current logbook software producers can offer a system based on handheld devices. Moreover the requested by the law reporting frequency should take into account the lack of satellite terminals on board of small fishing vessels. The report proposes various scenarios to optimise the use of handheld deviacies on board of small fishing vessels.
