One of our goals is to be as transparent as possible and release as much of our data and related analyses as we can, including those that are still “in development.” We’ve created a data portal geared toward researchers, software engineers, data scientists, or anyone who is interested in having access “under the hood” of Global Fishing Watch.

Some of the datasets you can access through the portal include:

  • Vessel Identity
  • Fishing Activity
  • Transshipment
  • Anonymized AIS Data
