Description

Vessel Viewer is a tool being jointly developed by TMT and our partner Global Fishing Watch. The tool, made available through an app, integrates TMT fishing vessel identity and risk profile with Global Fishing Watch positional data and algorithms. When combined, these data sources provide users with information on a vessel of interest’s identity, fishing activity, port visits and transshipments. This allows users to identify and cross-check relevant, absent or false information about a given vessel and its fishing operations to inform risk-based decision-making and operational planning. Vessel Viewer is being initially rolled out to countries that TMT and GFW are assisting with the implementation of Port State controls, but will later be developed to support much broader fisheries management applications.
