Discover the oceans through big data
Just a decade ago, building an accurate picture of commercial fishing across the globe would have been impossible. Today, thanks to advances in satellite technology, cloud computing and machine learning, Global Fishing Watch is making it a reality. We’re revolutionizing the ability to monitor commercial fishing, offering near real-time tracking of fishing activity via our public map. Anyone can use it, for free, to track fishing boats and download data about their activities. Our platform is helping enable scientific research, advocate for better policies to support marine protection, tackle overfishing and improve the way fishing is managed.
