GreenWave and the U.S. Department of State will be holding their second annual Fishackathon during June 5 – 7, 2015 leading up to World Oceans Day on June 8. Due to the success of our first Fishackathon, we are expanding the scope of Fishackathon 2015. This will be an international event calling for coders from all around the world to come together and create new applications and tools for mobile phones and devices which can provide real-time information to help fishermen work smarter and more safely. It will also allow them to report catches and build the capacity for better management, and create networks to improve the monitoring of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
