The Chilean government signed an agreement to make its vessel tracking data publicly available through Global Fishing Watch. This means that 700 fishing vessels and more than 800 vessels serving Chile’s aquaculture industry will be visible on Global Fishing Watch’s website which tracks the movements of commercial fishing vessels in near real-time. The agreement, which was made between Chile’s National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (or SERNAPESCA) and GFW, demonstrates Chile’s commitment to greater transparency in fishing and is the result of Oceana’s collaboration with the Chilean government to increase transparency of commercial fishing in Chilean waters.
