Countries willing to exploit sustainably their marine resources shall be equipped with adapted Fishery Research Vessels for both coastal and offshore missions. Relying on its expertise in fishing vessel design and survey and scientific vessel design, MAURIC is the perfect partner for your project of Fishery Research Vessel.

MAURIC offers simple and robust solutions for coastal investigation to more complex vessels with a high level of integration of equipment on board to reach a high level of operability. In both case, these Fishery Research Vessels are equipped for a variety of tasks including oceanographic and hydrographic survey, stocktacking and experimental testing of new fishing techniques. Additionally, these vessels can also be used for fishery training.

The extensive know-how of MAURIC for the design of customized scientific and fishing vessels is combined to deliver tailor-made but polyvalent solutions. Our designs benefit from our experience in the conception of performing hull-form for high level of seakeeping and fuel efficiency. The excellent seakeeping performances of our designs allows achieving a high level of comfort and operability on board. The launch and recovery of fishing nets, survey or scientific equipment is made easier and safer thanks to the limited motions and accelerations of our vessels and the choice of adapted equipment (A-frame, motion compensated cranes, etc...)

Our Fishery Research Vessels designs are from 14 to 48 meters long and built in Aluminium or/and Steel. They are able to reach a speed of 15 knots and can host up to 33 persons on board. General arrangement of our designs can be customized to the number of crew and scientific personal to accommodate, to the type of labs to integrate and the type of fishing techniques used for stocktacking. Our expertise in survey and scientific equipment integration allows us guaranteeing the best performances at sea. Like for the other MAURIC solutions, special attention is paid to the ergonomics of the aft working deck and accommodation providing safety and comfort to the crew in working areas and in living quarters and fishing labs.  

MAURIC sea-proven solutions for Fishery Research Vessels offers great safety, flexibility and operability for optimizing your campaigns at sea for fish stock management.
