STOCKHOLM, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fishbrain, the most popular mobile app and social network for fishing with more than three million users, today launched the world's first fish species recognition feature. Fish Species Recognition allows users to automate the process of confirming and logging their catches, while also helping to identify those they may be less familiar with. The feature is available on both iOS and Android.
"Whether you're new to fishing or simply casting a line into new waters, it can be hard to properly log your catch if you don't know what you've caught," said Johan Attby, CEO of Fishbrain. "By adding even more intelligence into our app so we can automatically identify catches using the photos anglers are already taking, we're making sure that every fish reeled in can be tracked as quickly and easily as possible so anglers can focus on catching more fish and having more fun!"
In seeking to preserve the preferred user experience for the Fishbrain community, Fish Species Recognition has been integrated into the existing catch-tracking flow. Previously, a user would have to manually sift through options and choose a species to log their catch in the app. As of today's update, Fishbrain's new predictive technology will suggest the most appropriate species and assign an accuracy score.
Fishbrain also announced they have added an enhanced premium tool called Fishing Intelligence, a new feature that replaces Fishbrain's earlier map system. Fishing Intelligence is more interactive and assists users in finding the most common species, top baits and fishing forecasts for any area of the world. In response to requests from the community, Fishbrain is also increasing the number of baits and lures available in the app, and has committed to frequent bait and lure additions going forward.
This is all being added to Fishbrain's list of features for anglers like fishing forecasts based on real-catch data, the ability to track various species, sharing experiences with friends, finding hot new fishing spots and seeing what other people are catching, with what bait and specifically where. Fishbrain can be downloaded from the App Store or the Google Play Store™. You can also follow Fishbrain on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Fishbrain is the most popular mobile app and social network for fishing, connecting everyone from beginner to pro anglers with the tools and insights to fully enjoy the world's most popular hobby while catching more and bigger fish. The app's interactive map helps anglers find hot new fishing spots and see what other people are catching, with what bait and specifically where. With other features like Fish Species Recognition, forecasts, bait recommendations and more, Fishbrain has become one of the most valuable and rewarding tools in a fisherman's tackle box. And, with the ability to post photos and videos, log catches, share experiences with an engaging community, and watch tips and tricks from pro ambassadors like Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, Mike "Ike" Iaconelli, April Vokey and Robert Field, Fishbrain is not only fueling inspiration, but helping its more than three million users across the globe have more fun by fishing smarter, not harder.
Fishbrain values responsible fishing and the sustainable harvest of fish species, as well as the tracking of rare and endangered species through a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Wildlife Commission. For more information, go to www.fishbrain.com.
