Illegal fishing is difficult to enforce on the Ocean. The key to enforcing illegal activity on the water is monitoring. Using a boat and/or a plane can be costly and does not cover enough space to monitor effectively, which is the reason why satellites have become a great option for enforcement agencies to help in monitoring illegal activities.
Listen to the episode to find out how a company is about to release 36 satellites into space to help monitor illegal fishing.
