Global Fishing Watch

90% of global fisheries are thought to be fully exploited or over-fished (UNFAO, 2014). Global Fishing Watch is a collaboration between SkyTruth, Oceana and Google, who have created this interactive tool where all trackable fishing vessels can be located on a map.

It is currently in the prototype stage and it will be available to the public so that anyone can be aware of, and help monitor, commercial fishing across the globe.
