For our 14th challenge, Data For A Cause worked with Global Fishing Watch. Global Fishing Watch uses data from AIS tracking devices and other kinds of information to show what's happening in the oceans around the world. They monitor commercial fishing activity and larger boats.
We used the recent data from Global Fishing Watch as well as open data to analyze fishing activities of richer countries in poorer countries' waters.
Thank you to all our contributors for participating in this project! And thanks to our supporters for cheering and sharing our mission!
And after much deliberation, we have the winners! Drum roll please!
