Tech giant Google Inc. along with environmentalists Skyruth and Oceania recently embarked on a daunting task of monitoring overfishing around the world’s oceans.

The project necessitates a combined technological combination of cloud computing, utilization of big data and establishing large networks.

Dubbed Global Fishing Watch, the aim of the project is to provide citizens worldwide a simple platform to visualize, track and share fishing activities all around the world, addressing the need to monitor overfishing in almost 90% of the world’s fishing grounds.
