The FAO Fishing Vessels Finder (FVF) is an online tool to locate information on individual fishing vessels (including supporting vessels, carriers, fishery research vessels and inspection boats) that are disseminated - or were disseminated in the past - by a range of national, multi-national, regional and international organizations.
All the information accessible via the FVF is shown exactly as originally disseminated by its source, with proper identification of owners and date of retrieval for each detail. Thus FAO will accept no liability on credibility and accurateness of the information reported.
FAO has made its best effort in identifying potential duplication of vessels disseminated by multiple sources within the range allowed by the available information and resources allocated for this task
