The Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not monitor the operation of fishing vessels. However, the Marine and Fisheries Agency monitors the movements of all UK-registered fishing vessels. Vessels fishing off the coast of Morocco and Western Sahara under the EU-Morocco Fisheries Agreement report their movements and catches to the Marine and Fisheries Agency. This information is then passed on to the European Commission, who collate the information from all EU member states.
