About Fish Pass
We launched Fish Pass app to the public in June 2018 and it has been running successfully since. It functions as a digital facsimile of the traditional Westcountry Angling Passport paper system while reducing the paper usage and manual counting needed to run the scheme.
The successful tenderer will be tasked to improve and strengthen the processes within Fish Pass. This will simultaneously improve efficiency and reduce the friction cost of administering payment within the existing paper-based system.

What the Fish Pass improvements need to achieve
Fish Pass successfully takes payment in exchange for pre-paid digital tokens that are held on account, akin to pay-as-you-go credit. Anglers may then redeem their days fishing by scanning a Quick Response (QR) code at the river side, producing a “Boarding Pass” (permission to fish) and simultaneously reducing their token balance, this can be achieved without network connection as many of our rivers are within deep valleys with little connectivity.
The scoped improvements will increase the robustness of the transactions, both online and offline. Increase the reference data to ease auditing and fault finding. Add function to serve our external partners within the Cornwall area to allow them to diversify their product. Aide new users in getting to grips with the app after download. Improve the User Experience, searchability of data and social sharing of catch returns.
