Update: March, 16/2013 - 09:26

KIEN GIANG (VNS)— A Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) will be installed on 407 fishing boats in the southern province of Kien Giang this year, according to the local coastal radio station.

Part of the French-funded MOVIMAR surveillance project, the system will provide vessels with hydro-meteorological forecasts that warn them of approaching storms and other bad weather conditions.

"The VMS facilitates contact between fishermen and the mainland and helps them feel more secure when fishing on the sea," said fisherman Pham Van Ngoan.-VNS
