European Fisheries Control Agency

New technologies for Maritime Surveillance

In line with its mission, the EFCA also contributes to the work of Member States and the Commission on research into and development of control and inspection techniques.

The EFCA, being a promoter of emerging technologies, is involved in various Horizon 2020 development projects with regards to the use of maritime surveillance and Earth observation techniques. The EFCA’s unique position, representing the fisheries control user community as a whole, provides valuable access for project managers and developers to fisheries control user requirements when developing new tools. In addition, at the request of the Commission or in the framework of inter-agency cooperation, the EFCA is looking into emerging technologies whenever there is a potential added value for fisheries control and surveillance.
