Know the name or identity of a specific vessel you would like to find on the map? Here’s a step-by-step guide that shows you how to find it.
Select the arrow in the upper right corner of the map to open the layers panel.
Select the magnifier icon to open the search window. (Note, if the magnifier icon does not appear, select INFO to see the magnifier.)
In the search window that appears, type in the MMSI, IMO, callsign, or name for the vessel you wish to see. You can also search for a port by name.
The search results will show you all the vessels in the Global Fishing Watch database that match your search criteria. Select the one you want.
When the track comes up, you can use the timeline on the bottom to narrow the time window for your search results.
