Poaching. Prevented by RPMA.
Because fishing plays such a central role to so many nations along the ocean it has become very important to make sure that everyone is playing by the rules. When fishermen fish outside of their nation’s boundaries without a license, it is poaching, and poses a serious threat to the economic and ecological livelihood of all nations using those waters. McMurdo Group’s tracking application improves the ability of national fleets to be identified so when coastal authorities are out on patrol, they can know who should, and who should not, be fishing in their maritime space. This helps preserve important species and maintain a sustainable fishing practice for everyone’s benefit.
