Global Fishing Watch

We’re back with a new season of Location Matters! To kick off the first episode of season three, we’re joined by David Kroodsma, Director of Research and Innovation at Global Fishing Watch, and Brian Sullivan, Program Manager at Google Earth Outreach. David and Brian look back at how Global Fishing Watch started and how the platform is utilising Google Cloud and Google Earth Engine to identify fishing vessels with high risk of forced labour, track illegal fishing in North Korea, and so much more.
