About

Numer8 was founded to address the livelihood of the fishing community who were facing an indirect threat to their sustenance and livelihood due to the Read more danger looming on the oceans. It aims to build a global, sustainable and traceable seafood eco-system. It has developed mobile application “OFish” to aid fisher folk to find the nearest concentration of fish to their location and stay away from dangerous areas of the ocean. It has also developed "QResQ" an innovative dashboard to help the authorities conduct rescue operations in times of natural calamaties. It uses data collected by the European Space Agency and NASA to arrive at ocean analysis data and forecasts. Due to the application being available to fishermen as well as ocean authorities there is a trace of fishing and non-fishing boats in the sea which leads to better monitoring of international waters. Besides India the organisation also has an office in Prague, Czech Republic.
