Oceans, Biodiversity
& Human Rights

Geeks without Frontiers is working with maritime stakeholders to leverage cost-effective digital solutions on fishing vessels.


Our mission, with support from leading public and private sector organizations, is to implement a blueprint that encompasses the public-policy needs of government, the returns on investment for the private sector, the improvement of socio-economic standards for workers and their families, and environmentally sustainable fishing practices.

GWF’s assessments indicate that solutions can be successfully scaled worldwide. To prove its assertions, Geeks has begun coordination with representatives of each sector in preparation for implementation of a pilot project, which is planned to occur in one of the world’s largest source of tuna, the Pacific Islands.

Connected Fishing Vessel White Paper

GWF researched the benefits and opportunities for connectivity at sea in Thai and Fijian fisheries. GWF’s recommendations for “cost-effective voice and data services that can be bundled and scaled” to provide opportunity for action at collective and regional levels. The paper delves into cost-effective voice and data services aimed at enhancing sustainability within the fishing sector. By leveraging connectivity, fishing vessels can optimize operations, improve productivity, and make informed decisions for better resource management.
