Project Eyes on the Seas

Pioneering technology to help end illegal fishing

Project Eyes on the Seas

The Pew Charitable Trusts launched a groundbreaking technology platform that will help authorities monitor, detect, and respond to illicit fishing activity across the world’s oceans.  Project Eyes on the Seas combines satellite monitoring of the oceans with other information, such as fishing-vessel databases and oceanographic data, to help authorities detect suspicious fishing activity far more efficiently than has been possible in the past— often in near-real time.
