Our Story

A BOAT. THE FLORIDA KEYS. A MYSTERIOUS FISH.

FishVerify began in April 2014 after our founders returned from a fishing trip unable to identify one of their catches.

Even with a combined 80+ years of fishing in Florida waters, they were still stumped by this mysterious fish.  They decided to build an app that would identify fish and tell us the local rules & regulations.

Know the fish. Know the rules.

Save the seas and support sustainable fishing.

OUR VALUES

We protect less than 2% of our oceans, even though 71% of our planet is covered by water. Fish are worth more to humanity than gold, over 1 billion people rely on fish as their primary protein source.

80% of the worlds fish stocks are fully or over exploited and we are overfishing our oceans.

Each year billions of marine animals, including many endangered species become bi-catch (the unintended victims of indiscriminate fishing practices). The incorrect identification of a particular fish species or not knowing the local rules and regulations are major contributors to the problem.

If we don’t take action, some scientists have predicted that our fish stocks will collapse by the middle of the century.

Marine regulations work, they provide a refuge for species including fish, top predators and migratory animals by protecting the habitats they depend on during critical life stages.

Restoring our oceans will take time, so we need to act globally and act now.
