Make sure you are logged in to your Global Fishing Watch account so the platform includes all data sources you have permissions to view. Try searching by identification numbers like IMO or MMSI and filter by flag.
The majority of fishing vessels in our map are commercial fishing vessels and refrigerated cargo vessels. We only display fishing vessels that our algorithms and analysts consider to be validated as fishing vessels. We improve and update our vessel list periodically. If you cannot find a specific vessel that you know is fishing or a refrigerated cargo vessel, contact us and provide the vessel information so we can review whether to update the vessel list.
