Create an app that contains all applicable laws, regulations and decrees to assist IUU investigators and port inspectors.
KnowFish is a mobile app to help IUU investigators and port inspectors by providing easy access to laws, regulations, maps and species — all based on a user’s detected location.
How KnowFish Helps
*Mobile tool for countries that may lack the capacity and/or resources to effectively address IUU activities in their jurisdictions
*Potential to save countries time, money and resources
*Ability to report IUU fishing and seafood fraud
*Provides easy access to relevant information
Utilizes geofencing which defines geographical areas of interest, and can notify the user when they enter or exit a geofence
Displays laws and regulations relevant to detected location
Features a location-aware species indicator which provides the user with probable species within the area
Includes an incident reporting feature, lists of IUU vessels, links to full text legislative documents
The application programming interface (API) empowers developers and provides additional capabilities for future integration
Challenges We Ran Into
Sourcing accurate information, finding maps.
