Satellite surveillance of fishing vessel activity in the Ascension Island Exclusive Economic Zone and Marine Protected Area

Description:

Designation of large expanses of the ocean as Marine Protected Area (MPA) is increasingly advocated and realised. In collaboration with OceanMind and the Ascension Island Government researchers trialled the use of satellite monitoring technologies to support patrol vessel operations. They worked to target on-the-ground investigation on suspicious activity and understand the levels of legal and illegal fishing activity in the licenced fishing grounds to the north of the island and the fully-closed areas to the south, which could be formally declared a Marine Protection Area (MPA) in 2019.
