90% of the world’s fish stocks are nearing or already beyond the limits of sustainable fishing. Illegal fishing risks pushing those stocks over the edge. With over 3 billion people relying on seafood as their main source of protein, and the livelihoods of 12% of the world’s population depending upon the fishing industry, this is fast becoming a global crisis.
We are tackling this problem through the use of big data analytics such as machine learning, data visualisation, and effective user experience. Our team of fisheries compliance experts, empowered by advanced technology, are helping authorities and seafood buyers around the world drive greater sustainability through increased compliance. We work with governments, government agencies & regulatory bodies, fisheries, retailers, producers, aquaculture and non-government organisations to improve the sustainability of fishing globally.
