There is no marine equivalent of Area Control Centres. The VTS stations
that this thread refers to are usually operated by port authorities and
only control the traffic in their jurisdictions. Some busy sealanes
(e.g. Dover Strait/Pas de Calais) are controlled by coastguard services
as they do not control the traffic of any particular port.
