The animated Gif below shows Global Fishing Watch platform before the addition of data from Spire’s nano-satellites and after. Note: each lighted point on the map indicates a fishing vessel engaged in fishing. The new data points do not necessarily indicate more fishing vessels, but rather, more complete tracks of the vessels in our database.
