Our Ocean Conference Commitments

(2015) As part of Sea Scout, Gabon announced that the United States, Gabon, and others are exploring a partnership to enhance surveillance of illegal fishing.  This would be a way to harness the expertise of the public and private sectors to advance state of the art tools to automatically detect IUU fishing activities in marine parks and other ocean areas in Gabon and elsewhere using various sources of data, for example from satellites, radars, and vessels.
