The Research Partners program is an interdisciplinary collaboration that strives to improve fisheries management and science through shared data and cooperation.
Scientists play a key role in identifying and understanding the complex challenges facing our oceans, which is why we are working closely with some of the world’s leading researchers to extend the value of our dataset. Our collaborations contribute to discoveries and solutions critical to marine conservation, global economics, and human welfare. The partnerships we are forging will help us understand the role fishing plays in the physical, biological, economic, and political factors of the oceans.
Transparency and collaboration are core principles of Global Fishing Watch, and the Research Partnerships program is based on these principles. Research partners are committed to sharing datasets, ideas, and methodologies with the belief that broader access to information leads to future initiatives and innovations in support of more sustainable fisheries.
Results generated from these collaborations can be found on our Publications page.

What researchers are saying about Global Fishing Watch
“I think Global Fishing Watch is poised to completely revolutionize the way fisheries are managed, the way fisheries are assessed, the way fisheries are monitored and evaluated. So I think pretty much everything we do in fisheries could be revolutionized by Global Fishing Watch.”
Dr. Chris Costello
“I think Global Fishing Watch could play a key role in making human use of the ocean transparent to everybody.”
