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
