Global Fishing Watch works in partnership with a growing number of organizations that contribute data, expertise, and funding to make global fishing activity more transparent. Global Fishing Watch provides the tools to allow people to visualize fishing activity and to analyze its effects.
Global Fishing Watch was created by Oceana, SkyTruth and Google.
Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation. Oceana is rebuilding abundant and biodiverse oceans by winning science-based policies in countries that control one third of the world’s wild fish catch. With more than 200 victories that stop overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution and killing of threatened species like turtles and sharks, Oceana’s campaigns are delivering results. A restored ocean means that one billion people can enjoy a healthy seafood meal, every day, forever. Together, we can save the oceans and help feed the world. To learn more, visit www.oceana.org.
