Monitor fishing activities and their impact

NextOcean provides statistics and analyses on fishing areas and fishing activities. We are working towards a continuous, automated, and systematic assessment of the impact of fishing activities. This serves as a support for in-situ inspections.

Trade sustainably, minimise bycatch and provide accurate ecolabelling

NextOcean uses Earth Observation data to monitor the location and performance of fisheries. We combine this with fisheries sector data to deliver meaningful certification of fish provenance and generate evidence of sustainability for ecolabelling.

Monitor aquaculture

NextOcean monitors the locations of aquaculture cages, environmental impacts of fish farms and provides an early warning tool for operational risks from plankton blooms and pollution events. This provides regulatory authorities and responsible farmers with a cost effective evidence-based solution to ensure the continued sustainability of aquaculture.
