We’re revolutionizing the ability to monitor the global commercial fishing fleet, offering near real-time tracking of fishing activity via our public map. Anyone can use it, for free, to track fishing boats and download data about their past and present activities. Our platform is helping enable scientific research, advocate for better policies and marine protection, and improve the way fishing is managed.
“With the data Global Fishing Watch provides, governments, fishery management organizations, researchers and the fishing industry can work together to rebuild fisheries and protect critical marine habitats.”
