It began in 1987 when a Japan Tuna Long Line company was in need of crews for their vessels, it picked up from then on until today. Since then we have evolved and also pioneered this service in Indonesia, getting goverment grants from Japan and Indonesia to further develop our services in the manning industry. We diversified and developed a training centre to further better the workers that we send out, and today we also train and certify Observers professionals, with the cooperation from the Japan Tuna Association, whom will work to monitor and capture research data at the fishing vessel.
