Latest Updates

Vessel-Check Network Continues to Expand!

This map view taken recently is a snap-shot of forecast vessel arrivals for the next 7 days for ports monitored by Vessel-Check, here we are showing over 3,300 vessels. The forecast is updated 4 times a day with the latest information from our AIS data provider.

Port Authorities, Regulators and Marine Title Holders – would you like to know potential pest impact zones?

Agriculture Victoria, a Vessel-Check regulatory user, required an estimate of the potential spread of larvae particles released from a docked vessel and transported through their waterways.  Using Port of Melbourne’s calibrated 3-dimensional model of Port Phillip Bay and ABM Lab, our team was able to produce predictions of the potential spread of a marine pest released from several different berths at staged time intervals.  Watch the animation now!
