MCS Practitioners Introductory Guide: Industrial Fishing Vessel Inspections

INSPECTIONS DE NAVIRES DE PÊCHE INDUSTRIELLE / INSPECCIONES DE BUQUES DE PESCA INDUSTRIAL / INDUSTRIAL FISHING VESSEL INSPECTIONS

This MCS Practitioners Introductory Guide has been developed by Trygg Mat Tracking (TMT) in cooperation with the International MCS Network (IMCSN).

It is intended to be used as a training tool to introduce common international industrial fishing vessel

and gear types, towards building knowledge in personnel working in all agencies

(Fisheries, Port, Coast Guard and Navy, Maritime etc.) who may play an operational role

in fisheries monitoring control and surveillance (MCS), as well as for use by broader

interested stakeholders.


While this guide is a stand-alone tool focussed on introducing the key concepts required

to carry out an industrial fishing vessel inspection, it has been developed as part of

series of similar introductory guides on major industrial fishing vessels, gear types, and

related operations.


All the guides are available for download:
