Sovereign wealth and biodiversity but our fisheries are being harvested beyond sustainable levels.

Mapping global fishing Today, in partnership with Oceana and SkyTruth, we’re launching Global Fishing Watch. A beta technology platform intended to increase awareness of fisheries and influence sustainable policy through transparency. Global Fishing Watch combines cloud computing technology with satellite data to provide. This data can help inform sustainable policy and identify suspicious behaviors for further investigation.

But amidst all these sobering trends, we’re also better equipped to face these challenges — thanks to the rise of technology, increased availability of information.                                                                                                                                                           We’ve also developed a Global Fishing Watch Research Program with 10 leading institutions from around the world. economic, environmental, policy, .  And climate change implications on fisheries at a scale not otherwise possible.

More than 22 million points of information per day — through machine learning classifiers to determine the type of ship (e.g., cargo, tug, sail, fishing).                                                                                                           This data can help inform sustainable policy and identify suspicious behaviors for further investigation. By understanding what areas of the ocean are being heavily fished.

Often, fish populations are so depleted that.

Fish populations have already plummeted by 90 percent for some species within the last generation.   And the human population is only growing larger. Mapping global fishing the world’s oceans and fisheries are at a turning point. Over a billion people depend on wild-caught fish for their primary source of protein. Slave labor issues, livelihoods.
