Revolutionizing Ocean Monitoring and Analysis
Using cutting-edge technology, Global Fishing Watch seeks to advance ocean governance through increased transparency of human activity at sea.
Bringing together stakeholders, the Joint Analytical Cell aims to provide authorities with fisheries intelligence, analysis and capacity building to combat illegal fishing.
New research shows fishing for tuna into daylight hours increases dangers for threatened seabirds and presents opportunity for better management.
The Global Fishing Watch map is the first open-access online platform for visualization and analysis of vessel-based human activity at sea, including fishing activity, encounters between vessels, night light vessel detection and vessel presence.
What we do
Our purpose is to create and publicly share knowledge about human activity at sea to enable fair and sustainable use of our ocean.
We use cutting-edge technology to turn big data into actionable information. We believe human activity at sea should be common knowledge in order to safeguard the global ocean for the good of all.
