Vessel Monitoring System

Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) are installed on commercial fishing vessels to allow regulatory agencies to monitor position, time, course and speed of the vessel. They come equipped with a transmitter and GPS unit and are usually mandated for vessels of a certain size or type. VMS is important for regulatory organizations to track fishing vessels within territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zones.
