Researchers from Dalhousie University help track fishing from space for the first time ever
Humans have been fishing for at least 42,000 years, and for the first time ever, its global footprint can be tracked from space.
Dr. Boris Worm, a Marine Biology Professor in Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Science, and Kristina Boerder, a PhD student from Dalhousie University’s Department of Biology, have partnered with Global Fishing Watch, The University of California, Stanford University, National Geographic Society, SkyTruth, and Google to produce the first ever dataset of global industrial fishing activities by using an unprecedented collection of satellite-sensed automatic identification system (AIS) positions, machine learning, and computing power.
The findings from their research demonstrate the massive global extent of fishing activity, both within countries’ exclusive economic zones, but also on the high seas, in unprecedented resolution.
