Tracking Dynamite Fishing

Part of pan-African sensors.AFRICA network of citizen-science sensors.

Sea Sensors is an acoustic data project that collects underwater blast data to help provide quantitative spatial information on the incidence of the problem over time, that will enable targeted enforcement.

We use underwater microphones to record blasts from dynamite fishing off Tanzania’s coast and uses the data (location, time, magnitude of blasts) to inform the public and officials through online maps and data-driven stories.

Sea Sensors is headed by marine scientist, Gill Braulik and was granted funding through Code for Africa’s innovateAFRICA fund.
