Satellite monitoring

Satellite-based monitoring offers an effective means for detecting IUU fishing and is in most cases viable, both technically and financially.

Machine learning and automatic recognition are some of the many exciting developments, that speed-up monotonous and dreadful task that would otherwise take weeks to now only several hours.

Oil slick detection, harmful algae blooms, coastal flooding, bilge dumps, and aquaculture facilities and maritime planning are some of the applications.
