The PNA 1st Implementing Arrangement began as a regional fishing vessel register. This was later followed by development of a Vessel Monitoring System (VMS). Under the VMS, all licensed fishing vessels are required to fit an Automatic Location Communicator which monitors the vessel's position, speed, and course. In this way, fishing vessels are electronically monitored 24/7.
