Global Fishing Watch seeks to create a healthy, productive and resilient ocean by enabling the fair and effective governance of marine resources through increased transparency of human activity at sea. 

In 2016, using satellite imagery and machine learning, we built the first online map to publicly monitor industrial fishing activity taking place across our global waters—and we made it available for free to anyone with an internet connection. We are now harnessing new and emerging technology to help track all human activity at sea. And you can help, too. 

By supporting our efforts to monitor and visualize the impact we are having on our ocean, together we can create a more sustainable future for the ocean on which we all depend. .

As a 501(c)(3) charity, any contributions to Global Fishing Watch are deductible for United States federal income tax purposes.
