Technical solutions from BarentsWatch are set to help an analysis unit at the Vardø vessel traffic service (VTS) centre in northern Norway with exposing illegal activity on the high seas.
BarentsWatch is a collaboration between government agencies and research institutions working to collect, develop and share knowledge of coastal and marine areas close to Norway.
Ten ministries and 25 government agencies and research institutes stands behind BarentsWatch. The Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) is our host agency.
Identifies areas in the Barents Sea, Norwegian Sea, North Sea and Skagerrak that are especially valuable biologically.
