Joint Analytical Cell
The Joint Analytical Cell is an initiative that aims to provide authorities with fisheries intelligence, analysis and capacity building to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. The collaboration brings together various stakeholders to build key insights and capacity that will help enhance fisheries management.
Who we are
Founded in 2022 by the International Monitoring, Control and Surveillance Network, Global Fishing Watch and TM-Tracking, the Joint Analytical Cell harnesses innovative technology and the complementary expertise of its wider collaborating organizations to improve the effectiveness of fisheries monitoring, control and surveillance, with a particular focus on developing maritime States.
What we do
The Joint Analytical Cell aims to promote collaboration and make data, tools and training readily available to reduce IUU fishing and its associated crimes. The initiative works alongside State and non-State actors to build new knowledge and capacity that will help strengthen fisheries management and produce effective and intelligence-led enforcement responses.

How we work
As a collective, we seek to operate with a coalition of diverse organizations and States and serve as a hub for information sharing, technology, data and operational support. Our shared vision is to make sense of the multiple technology and data offerings in the sphere of fisheries intelligence to enable collaborative monitoring, control and surveillance efforts across States.
By fostering credible and equitable cooperation from around the globe, and enabling partner organizations to present integrated solutions, we aim to combine our various strengths to produce actionable information and provide capacity assistance designed to deliver real change on the water.
Global Fishing Watch brings a unique value to the Joint Analytical Cell, with already-established expertise in providing data analysis to international fisheries enforcement operations. Big data and innovative technologies are transforming the way we manage the ocean and its resources—Global Fishing Watch is taking advantage of these emerging technologies to generate new insights to promote international cooperation and drive better ocean governance.
