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.

Latest news


By embracing transparency, governments and authorities have a more cost-effective way of monitoring vessels, allowing fishers to demonstrate compliance rather than requiring the country to prove illegality.


Global Fishing Watch partners with leading scientific institutions to produce new open-source datasets and analyses and understand the most critical challenges facing our ocean.


Our open-access data visualizations and analysis tools enable scientific research and drive a transformation in how we manage our ocean.
