    A new home for the Falkland Islands Maritime Authority

    Public Protection and Environment Portfolio Lead, MLA Leona Roberts, added: “The maritime function is crucial to protecting our waters”

    From Tuesday 1 December 2020 the Falkland Islands Maritime Authority will sit within the Directorate of Emergency Services and Island Security (DESIS). For over 30 years the Directorate of Natural Resources (formally Fisheries) was the home of the maritime function. However, in recent years, the government has been working towards meeting both its national and international obligations, leading to the establishment of the Maritime Authority in 2018.
