Since its inception in year 1987, Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) has been striving hard to police and protect vast sea areas of Pakistan. The issue of maritime challenges is wide-ranging and multifaceted anywhere in the world. It requires vast infrastructure and resources for effective response. Despite limited resources, PMSA is constantly endeavoring to be operationally prepared and undertake/ discharge its responsibilities with utmost sincerity and dedication. The relentless efforts of its officers and men have made this force capable to curb illegal activities substantially through effective Maritime laws in the Maritime Zones of Pakistan.
Pakistan is proud of this organization which maintains a vibrant presence at sea through rigorous patrols and multidimensional activities to regulate various activities at sea and protect our maritime interests. Primarily, activities of PMSA are directed towards ensuring protection of resources of Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), Search & Rescue (SAR) operations in the area allocated by International Maritime Organization (IMO), Disaster Management at Sea, protection of Marine Environment, ensuring safety and protecting our fishermen and regulating deep sea fishing activities. Besides this, PMSA has made enormous contribution in preventing smuggling and drug trafficking through sea.
I urge upon all officers and men of PMSA to put up their best in discharging their duties and display profound spirit of patriotism. It is essential to remain current with respective professions, specializations and about the latest changes in the laws/ conventions/ agreements. I am sure that with our collective efforts, Pakistan Maritime Security Agency shall be able to achieve highest level of performance while serving the cause of the nation in accordance with the highest traditions of the service. May Almighty Allah bless us all.
