Marine Survey

Marine Survey

The seas surrounding the Virgin Islands are an invaluable natural resource.
Besides being the ‘sailing capital of the world’ there are potential economic
opportunities that could be exploited in our waters, as well as resources that
require protection.
Developing an effective ‘blue economy’ requires first collecting data on the
marine environment through a marine survey. These data can then be used to
decide how best to utilise available resources – otherwise known as marine
spatial planning.

Road Town Police Station

The Marine base currently is the centre for operation for the Police and Customs Marine operations. With the damage received during the 2017 hurricanes the place is no longer conducive for operations and does not allow for around the clock operations. It is questionable whether the building itself can be repaired at a reasonable cost or whether it should be demolished and replaced with the ‘warehouse’ style construction now evident in the direct vicinity.
