Myanmar Steps up its Fight Against IUU Fishing Approving CLS Triton VMS for Monitoring its Offshore Fleet

Vessel monitoring systems (VMS) will help Myanmar reduce illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing and protect the sovereignty of its EEZ. There has been a 90 percent decline in Myanmar’s marine fishery resources in the past 40 years (FAO) and Myanmar’s Department of Fisheries (DOF) has been very active in the last year to implement sustainable fisheries management systems.

A Type Approval process was launched to select the best VMS mobile terminal units and CLS’ Triton was selected. Now all offshore vessels are required to have a VMS installed.
