1 VTSO, Marine Operations Centre, Aberdeen Harbour, Scotland, UK
ABSTRACT: This article is a personal view on why the need for port and coastal VTS services are needed around the world and in places where the need was never perceived before. From a professional formers mariners perspective the growth of VTS exactly mirrors the reduction in the standards of marine officer and the resulting reduction in the regard for the profession as a whole.
