The Regional Maritime Environmental Security Information Sharing Workshop and Table Top Exercise occurred 31 July 2018 – 03 August 2018 in Manado City, Indonesia. The main objective of the event was to strengthen capabilities to enhance maritime environmental security by identifying information sharing methods and techniques that are available to counter Illegal, Unregulated, and Unreported fishing in the Indo-Pacific region. The event included a Table Top Exercise designed to develop techniques to track vessels in the maritime domain focusing on fishery management zones, national parks, and the Sulu-Suluwesi seascape. The TTX also developed an agreeable list of information data to share, media in which to share, and formulated a plan to determine how security interdiction and response work both regionally, nationally, and trans-boundary. Lastly, the workshop provided examples of current fusion cells, developed a list of best practices, and developed structured analysis techniques for information fusion.
