Alfredo Caliz

Nr Gibraltar, Mediterranean, SPAIN

Coastguards on a sea rescue vessel survey the waters of the Strait of Gibraltar in the western Mediterranean, where a small passenger boat has been reported. Since the implementation of more stringent coastguard patrols in the Strait of Gibraltar, would-be immigrants to Europe have been taking longer routes across the Spanish coast, risking bad weather conditions for days on end in order to avoid detection. The surveillance system in the waters around Gibraltar, called SIVE (Sistema Integrado de Vigilancia Exterior) was conceived not only to identify foreign vessels but also to provide rapid rescue for those containing migrants making the treacherous crossing to mainland Europe.
