Volume 33 | Disrupting illegal fishing in the Pacific

The Southeast Pacific, a region especially dependent on fishing for economic security, has become one of the most unsustainably fished areas in the world. As demand for fish expands, illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing threatens food security, ocean ecosystems and economic growth around the world—and undermines port and maritime security. See how Maxar experts used InsightExplorer and Crow’s Nest Maritime Monitoring and Security solution to track AIS vessel movement, gain fish-catch insight, detect vessels not transmitting via AIS and identify vessels of interest with high-resolution satellite imagery.
