Vessel monitoring tech can save lives of Pinoy fisherfolk
MetadataShow full item record
Proper vessel monitoring can save lives and make fishing more sustainable. Seven sailors drowned when a Filipino merchant ship crashed into the USS Fritzgerald in the sea of Japan last 17 June. The accident was caused when the American destroyer turned off its Automated Identification System (AIS), making it difficult for the Filipino merchant ship to spot and avoid it. Last 21 August, the USS John McCain crashed into a commercial tanker near Singapore, leaving 10 dead.
