Global fishing watch

Politicians, environmentalists, and even Hollywood actors are in Washington, D.C., to make waves. They’ve gathered to discuss ways to protect the oceans and fisheries. And they’re getting a look a new online tool that offers a solution to one of the biggest issues – illegal fishing. Alicia Rose reports.

Big names to solve big problems. From Hollywood actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio to U.S. President Barack Obama. It is what we decide and do here that will shape our ocean’s future. But it’s no secret that we’re all going to have to do a lot more and we’re going to have to do it fast.

形作る、これは秘密でも何でもない、

Around 450 leaders from 90 countries and various organizations are at the Our Ocean Conference to discuss issues that put the oceans at risk.

Washington is backing cutting-edge technology to try to stop the practice. Global fishing Watch made its debut at the conference. It’s the world’s first public online tool allowing anyone to monitor the activities of commercial fishing vessels. Google worked alongside non-profits SkyTruth and Oceana on the system’s development. Here’s how it works.

The yellow dots show the movement of each fishing vessel in near real time. The system captures data from hundreds of thousands of ships worldwide. It tracks around 35,000 fishing vessels at any given moment. This vessel was flagged by the system when it entered into a marine protected area near the Pacific island of Kiribati. The movement indicates that the crew was fishing. Local authorities were able to catch and issue a fine based on the data.

For us, protecting the ocean is a very important issue. So it really is a matter of international diplomacy to get countries to work together to preserve the ocean.

国際外交、一緒に協力して、海を守る
