Situated in the South Atlantic Ocean, Tristan da Cunha is the most remote inhabited archipelago in the world. Part of the UK Overseas Territories, Tristan da Cunha’s 750,000-kmExclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) is closed to commercial fishing, with exception to those granted a licence issued under the provision of the Fishery Limits Order. 

The remote nature of the islands and the large EEZ make protecting against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing a real challenge. It is only through the use of satellite technology that detailed monitoring and surveillance of vessel traffic can take place.
