Global tags bring together various vessel lists around the world, ranging from illegal, unreported, or unregulated (IUU) fishing and worker exploitation, to safety, security, and environmental concerns. Each global tag represents an international issue published by an authoritative source.

All Starboard users have access to global tags and tagged vessels, while any organisation tags and tagged vessels remain private to your organisation.

Global tags are hidden by default but can be added to your user preferences by heading to manage tags →

Global vessels of interest and global tags are updated regularly. Global tags will continue to expand as more publicly available lists are integrated into Starboard. Contact to request an edit or a new list to be added.
