Tracking the Global Footprint of Fisheries

In the 23 February 2018 issue of Science, we published a global analysis of fishing effort using AIS data. We have made our data on the vessel identity and fishing effort freely available. This page will provide links to insights on the data that has been made available with this paper.

Access our fishing effort and vessel identity data through the Global Fishing Watch Community Page.

You can read about our fishing effort data here, and our vessel identity data here.

A public github repo with analyses and code for the paper is available here.
