Solutions for fisheries

Near real-time monitoring of ocean and weather conditions

Unlock critical information about marine life

The fishing industry is critical to our global economy and food supply—more than 3 billion people depend on fish for essential nutrition and the industry employs more than 160 million worldwide.

Maxar solutions enable sustainable commercial fishing practices that ensure healthy marine ecosystems and reduce overfishing and illegal fishing.

Making fisheries more efficient

The total surface area of the world’s oceans is about 362 million sq km. Oceanographic data analytics help sea captains and fishermen find fish more quickly and efficiently and protect aquaculture operators from adverse conditions, like Red Tide.

Optimize your fishing expeditions with tools and data for more efficient purse seining, long-lining and trolling—cutting search time and saving fuel. Access reliable, actionable insights to protect increasingly valuable fish stock, particularly as wild fish stocks decline due to climate change and pollution.
