Quang Tri province: Installing MOVIMAR equipment for 17 fishing vessels (11-03-2019)
Director of Quang Tri Sub-Department of Fisheries Nguyen Hoai Nam informed that before April 2019, MOVIMAR equipment will be installed on 17 fishing vessels (with a length of 24m or more).
According to the roadmap, by 2020, installing MOVIMAR equipment on fishing vessels (with a maximum length of 15m or more) in the province will be completed. The Sub-Department of Fisheries and localities will mobilize and encourage fishermen to comply with the regulations on the supervision of the journey according to the Fisheries Law 2017. The installation of MOVIMAR equipment helps competent agencies manage the operation at sea of fishing vessels and warning, preventing and handling fishing vessels violating foreign waters; provide fishing forecast newsletters to help fishermen effectively fish in Vietnamese waters. For rescuing actions, MOVIMAR system is currently the best system in informing and communicating for functional units at sea (naval, fishery resources surveillance, border guard, etc.) when incidents occur.
