The Government of National Unity has procured 300 Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) to safeguard the life and vessels of fishermen on both St. Kitts and Nevis. This is a very important undertaking, says Minister responsible for Marine Resources, the Honourable Eugene Hamilton, during a Sitting of National Assembly on February 20, 2019.
Minister Hamilton said that St. Kitts and Nevis is the first nation in the region to introduce this as a compulsory means of tracking for all the Federation’s fishing vessels. He added that signals will come to the central point onshore at 15 to 20 minute intervals. The system tracks, monitors and understands the path vessels.
