Problem Statement 15-15: "Inform fishers of all areas where chemical weapons and ammunition have been dumped in the world's oceans."
Background on Sustainable Fishing Issue
Over the course of many years, the disposal of chemical weapons and ammunition into the ocean has created dead zones or will create dead zones upon the weapons’ containers corroding, releasing toxic materials. Ammunition is made in part from lead which is highly toxic to fish.
I would like to challenge the hacker group to create a technology that can map these dumping zones will help fishermen avoid these areas and encourage developed countries to excavate the weapons from the ocean to enable a more sustainable ocean environment.
