Global Fishing Watch

Global Fishing Watch is an independent, international non-profit organisation.

We were originally set up through a collaboration between three partners: Oceana, an international ocean conservation organisation; SkyTruth, experts in using satellite technology to protect the environment; and Google, who provide the tools for processing big data.

Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing is a global crime. To put an end to it, we have to use all the tools we have to ensure that all fishing efforts in our waters are seen and recorded. Once Global Fishing Watch kicks in, no fishing boat will be able to hide.” – Susi Pudjiastuti, former Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Indonesia.
