Identify and investigate the criminal and political implications of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing operations with AI-driven insights into fishing vessels’ behavior and connections to supporting fleets.
Geopolitical expansion and great power competition
Track domestic and long distance fishing fleets’ behaviors in fishing “hot zones” worldwide as these vessels become essential tools for maintaining presence regardless of seasonal limitations, asserting power and enabling geopolitical expansion.
Illegal activities via supporting fleets
Proactively monitor long distance fishing vessels and their use of supporting fleets to disguise criminal behaviors, such as depletion of natural resources, human trafficking, food fraud, tax evasion, forced labor violations, and much more.
Predatory fishing practices by foreign vessels violate countries’ jurisdictions, causing depletion of their local stocks and disruption of the local food chain. IUU fishing is one of the greatest threats to marine ecosystems and the local economies that rely on the fishing industry.
