Enforcing quotas and fishing zones to preserve stocks for future generations
Managing and protecting marine resources
The future of our fisheries depends to a large extent on our ability to preserve stocks effectively. As a result, most coastal nations now mandate fishing vessels operating within their Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) to be equipped with a satellite-based vessel monitoring system (VMS). Argos provides a global solution, ArgoNet, which meets the requirement for monitoring fishing vessels and their catches. Argos has been certified by most of the leading seaboard nations around the world and is already operating on thousands of vessels worldwide.
