Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS)

Enforcement of the conservation measures of the fish stocks in the NAFO area is a prime consideration and Contracting Parties take their reporting obligations and the compliance of fishing vessels seriously. Considerable efforts are made to ensure and maintain a high level of compliance of the Conservation and Enforcement Measures, which include:

  • At-Sea Inspection and Surveillance Scheme
  • Port State Control
  • The Observer Scheme

The NAFO Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) website was developed in order to facilitate NAFO Inspectors to have electronic accessibility to all information regarding the fishing vessels operating in the NAFO Regulatory Area.
