Boating insights podcast with Linda Berryman: Essential MMSI number information

Thursday 31 August 2023

Linda Berryman talks maritime safety on the Boating Insights podcast.


AMSA’s distress alerting specialist, Linda Berryman, talks with Above and Beyond Boating about the importance of having your Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) programmed into your AIS (Automatic Identification System) or marine radio.  

This information is essential to allow other vessels and maritime authorities to identify your boat quickly. This also aids communication, especially in busy waterways or areas with high maritime traffic. In an emergency, your MMSI helps search and rescue services locate and assist you quickly.
