The centre will step up the ocean watch against illegal fishing and help with the challenges of keeping an active presence to watch over maritime resources and national borders.

Doing the honours as Minister of Marine Resources, the Prime Minister says there's more progress to come, warning those behind any illegal activity on the water, they will be caught and face the law of the Cook Islands.
