Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi inaugurated newly established Pakistan Maritime Security Agency Base Keti Bandar on Monday.
On the occasion, the Naval Chief was given briefing on the mission, roles, tasks and operational challenges of PMSA Base Keti Bandar.
Keti Bandar has a small population mainly dependent on fishing.
The PMSA Base will keep Area of Responsibility under effective surveillance through regular patrolling and prevent unauthorized exploitation of resources.
It will help fishermen with search and rescue operations as well as facilitate registration of fishing boats and assistance to public.
PMSA has recently launched a mobile application called "Assistance, Anytime, Anywhere at Sea (AAAS)" to facilitate maritime communities operating in Pakistan's territorial waters.
