exactEarth Illegal Fishing

Product by exactEarth

Combining satellite Automatic Identification System (AIS) and low powered easy to operate battery and solar powered AIS transponders, can provide near real-time tracking of any small fishing vessel, whether it operates close to shore or further out. This information provides fisheries authorities with both real-time information on legal and potentially illegal fishing activity (e.g. prohibited area transgressions), as well as the ability to analyse offline fishing patterns and sustainability in conjunction with local catch reporting.
