Abstract: Monitoring and control of fisheries activities is an integral part of national and international efforts to manage and regulate declining marine fish stocks. The use of satellite imaging techniques is currently being contemplated as a complementary technique to the existing Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) to optimise - costly - surveillance efforts, especially for remote areas of the Exclusive Economic Zones and international waters. An operational vessel detection system based on the use of SAR imagery is presented in this paper. The system is capable of near real time delivery of vessel positions for matching to known positional records. System architecture and implementation are addressed together with detection quality parameters and a number of operational issues. Future development of the system is also outlined.
