Vessel Monitoring System on Mexican Fishing Fleet
a straight forwards step to fisheries sustainability

VMS In Other Countries

Currently the countries that have a VMS in use are:

  • Chile, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Spain, EE.UU., France, Japan, Panama and Ecuador.


The Locator System and Satellite Vessel Monitoring broadcast is the position, speed, course and location of any fishing vessel on a 24 hours basis, 365 days a year, recording the course and any change of course even in port, thus generation more dynamic and complete reports.

Who Are Liable Parties To Use It

All Mexican flags vessels engaged in fishing activities, except sport-recreational, with in-board motor, above 80 HP (horsepower), with overall length exceeding 10.5 meters, operating in Mexican Federal jurisdiction waters of the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea.


The information provided by the VMS is a way to keep record the effective fishing effort in the fisheries by geographical area, which is very useful for scientific research in fisheries and fisheries management.

As well as contributing to and increasing safety measures to safeguard human life at sea, in compliance with the objectives of the Inter-Secretariat Commission on Maritime and Port Safety and Surveillance, in coordination with the Secretary of the Navy, for the search and rescue of the vessels on both coast, according to international agreements in which out country is a part (Safeguard and Rescue, International Maritime Organization (IMO)).


Satellite Vessel Monitoring System of Fishing Vessels has been used since 2004.

Since 2008, according to the Mexican Official Standard NOM-062-PESC-2007, the use of the satellite device in vessels engaged in commercial fishing is mandatory.

Current Situation

Due to its number of vessels and the diversity of its fisheries, Mexico has one of the most cutting-edge vessel monitoring systems in operation in the world today, due to its number of vessels and the diversity of fisheries. It currently covers around ,008 vessels, of which 1,094 are in the Pacific Ocean and 914 in the Gulf of Mexico. The system operates in such a way that contributes to compliance with fishery regulations, sustainability of fishery resources, strengthening of fisheries research,as well as to support monitoring, surveillance and control of fishing activities. In addition it provides critical information to authorities it provided critical information to authorities in locating and assisting vessels during natural or other emergencies.

National and International Agreements Regulating The System

SOLAS/74 concerning Safety of Life at Sea.

PBIP/2004 relating to vessels and port facilities.

SAR/79 referring to search and rescue, makes necessary the participation that corresponds to the Secretariat of Communication and Transport through the harbourmasters and the Secretariat of the Navy.

International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal,Unreported and Unregulated Fishing of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO, 1999) Paragraph 24.3.

Notification of Prohibited Fishing Zone

The VMS device alerts the authority when a vessel invades a Prohibited Fishing Zone ad notifies the crew of the vessel through the Control Panel by intermittently lighting a red Forbidden Zone light and emitting an audible alert of prohibition. This light will stop blinking and emit the sound, once the vessels leave the Forbidden Zone. For this purpose, the electronic geofence of Forbidden Fishing Zones, contained in regulations such as NOM-003-SAG / PESC-2013, was created for shrimp species in waters of Federal jurisdiction of the United Mexican States
