Home / About Us

OceanMind is a not-for-profit organisation working to increase the sustainability of fishing globally through actionable insights into fishing and fishing vessel compliance.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is a global concern that threatens the long-term health of our oceans and increases the impact of overfishing on critical marine ecosystems.

Empowered by advanced technology, OceanMind’s team of expert fisheries analysts provide focused and actionable insights to governments to facilitate more effective enforcement, and seafood buyers to help them make more informed buying decisions.

Our solution brings together a wide variety of data sources, including satellite observations, vessel tracking data, vessel identity databases, fishing license information, and detailed fisheries rules and regulations.  Machine learning and big data analytics are used to identify and prioritise indicators of non-compliance for analysts to investigate.  Our analysts deliver detailed reports and recommendations into non-compliance for our partners to action.

OceanMind is unique in providing services specifically designed to deliver the vital, detailed information required by governments and the seafood supply chain on fishing vessels, their behaviour and catch compliance.
