At a surface level, most people understand that there’s a growing problem with overfishing and dwindling levels of fish stocks. But how bad is it really, who’s responsible, and what action be taken?
Dedicated to tackling some of the planet’s most ambitious challenges, Minderoo Foundation set out to bring accountability to countries’ fishing practices by looking deeper at the problem, with the launch of a world-first Global Fishing Index. Based on complex research and data spanning 142 countries and 1,465 fish stocks, the Index was created to highlight the shortfalls of nations, policy-makers and companies fishing practices.
The sheer complexity and scale of this undertaking required a method of organising and representing its data and findings. An interface that could make this vast amount of data accessible, informative and engaging. One that would communicate clear and impactful results of each country, while allowing for easy cross-country comparison.
Embedding deeply with the Minderoo Foundation research team, we co-created a high-performing, intuitive, yet robust tool that breaks down the critical information of the Global Fishing Index to the scientific community, industry and policy-makers alike.
