    The use of automated satellite-linked vessel monitoring systems (VMS) is required for vessels operating in the Convention Area as per Conservation Measure (CM) 10 04. This paper summarises the implementation of this conservation measure by Members, summarising the number of vessels transmitting VMS data, manually reporting VMS data, notifying of movement between management areas, in addition to requests for VMS data for the purposes of surveillance activities and search and rescue.
