The Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resource Development has made the decision to use satellite technology for communication to and from multi-day fishing vessels.
The Ministry has accordingly planned to arrive at agreements with either Japan or Singapore in order to introduce the relevant technology to the vessels. Discussions will be held with the Ambassadors of the relevant foreign nations during the course of the next few days, the Ministry announced.
They affirmed that the advanced technology would replace the existing communication equipment used for multi-day fishing expeditions after an agreement was arrived at successfully with either of the two aforementioned nations.
