My vessel is not as secure as larger vessels – I’m worried about theft or vandalism of my I-VMS device and not being able to fish.
To date, over 200 devices have been installed on under six metre vessels and MMO has received no reports of theft or vandalism.
Suppliers and engineers will consider suitable installation locations that should reduce vandalism concerns whilst also ensuring the device’s ability to operate at its optimum level.
If theft or vandalism does occur, fishers should notify MMO of the incident with a Police crime number, where we will then advise on whether you can continue to fish. It is the fishers’ responsibility to replace the device e.g. through an insurance claim.
