The Gulf of California Marine Program (GCMP) at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) presents PINboat, a citizen science effort that aims to quantify where and how much people fish while educating the public about fishing activities and impact.
PINboat is an online platform that allows users to count vessels anywhere in the world’s oceans by “pinning” boats within satellite images. These pins are geographically tagged, allowing researchers to track boat traffic and fishing activities.
