WHEREVER WE FLY, SAIL AND OPERATE — THE POACHING STOPS.
Why the M/V Barracuda?
The M/V Barracuda is a marine conservation and anti-whaling patrol vessel designed to achieve a high-speed at extended ranges to enforce environmental conservation laws, she will be fully capable of traveling over 1,000 nautical miles at top speed under 55 knots and travelling over 13,000 nautical miles at cruise speeds. The high-speed is to quickly close in on any ship deploying fishing gear illegally or for the security of the ship to outrun a threat. Her intended operations will be against illegal fishing, whaling and the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife at sea, providing a rare and valuable capability at sea far from a land based rescue facility and will be the command center for the future fleet.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT
Work With Us
Our volunteers take on a law enforcement role, enforcing the United Nations World Charter For Nature by obstructing poaching on land and at sea by mobilizing the power of former military members, commanders, volunteers, donors and custom enforcement vessels and tools to win against poachers today, tomorrow and all the days to follow.
We are fighting every minute of every day to finish what we started, to increase our scope of operations and achieve our vision.
The road has not been easy, but if it was easy someone else would be doing it and not IMMCS. We do not conform to the rules others set or define.

Since 2015, we’ve led anti-whaling campaigns in Norway and devised the most innovative marine anti-poaching capabilities. Now we’re preparing to build a ship that can remain at sea for 365 days (one year) without refueling or using fuel during that time period.
