MSB Longline software

Software for tracking radiobuoys for longline fishing. The software makes daily work easier for the longliner integrating Marine Instruments radiobuoys M3P and M3P-T in traditional longline hauls.

MSB Longline  show the vessel’s position on C-MAP and its trace and the position and drifts of the radiobuoys in the longlines.


  • Automatic reception of M3P and M3P-T radiobuoys every 15, 10 and 5 minutes.
  • C-MAP basic cartography.
  • Position and traces of the vessel and radiobuoys displayed on a chart.
  • Setting up of multiple sets and long lines. Data collection.
  • Automatic detection of breakages in the line.
  • Tools to measure distances and drift.
  • Night mode: Low-glare screen for low light conditions.
  • Measure of water temperature of each buoy (M3P-T).
