Peskas is an advanced intelligence platform for small scale fisheries. Peskas was built with the objectives of being low cost, open source, open access and near-real time.
Peskas in Timor-Leste was initiated in 2016 in partnership with the Timor-Leste Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and it is the official fisheries national monitoring system of Timor-Leste. The project leverages on a team of Timorese enumerators collecting catch data from fishers around Timor-Leste. These data are matched with vessel tracking data to show fishing trends over time and space.
