"FishNET Explained" by Shah Selbe

The FishNET project focuses on developing integrated low cost technology solutions that drastically improve our ability to observe and collaborate data about illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing so that action can be taken to stop this destructive, illegal activity. The central hub to FishNET is a web-based information system that can capture and analyze official and crowd-sourced data on fishing vessels and exploited areas. This flexible and complementary suite of technologies, increased community participation and the FishNET database can drastically improve our ability to manage our impact on the oceans, shape effective ocean policy, maintain food security and fish sustainably.  FishNET would be a powerful tool for ocean stakeholders to use to fight IUU fishing activities.
