BeM, the software platform and the encompassing app suite powered by FrontM API, is the result of FrontM and its partners collaborative market research and extensive analysis.

The ocean is a common heritage of all humanity, providing millions of people across the world with livelihoods and contributing to a range of critical ‘ecosystem services’, from biodiversity and culture to carbon storage and flood protection, recreation and amenity opportunities. However, not all markts have the financial or technical means to share in the benefits of our marine and coastal resources or help protect them. And now, the ocean’s ecosystems are under threat from overfishing, pollution, habitat destruction and climate change. This is where BeM comes in

BeM is initially focused on fisherpeople’s wellbeing, for increased sustainability via connectivity, digitalisation of operations, tracking, regulatory compliance and data analytics.

The ‘blue’ economy represents roughly 5.4 million jobs and generates a gross added value of almost €500 billion a year. However, it is one of the last markets to benefit from digitalisation. Here are just some of the goals for BeM

Support sustainable fisheries management, aligning social and ecological outcomes

Drive data to improve the understanding among policymakers of the economic value of marine and coastal ecosystems in general, and small-scale fisheries in particular

Educate to enhance knowledge and understanding of inclusive policies for sustainable fisheries management so that fishers can lead thriving and healthy lives, and

Safeguard fisher people operating in deep sea from weather and collision risks, as well as creating a voice for crew who work in deprived conditions
