The crew of Royal Navy vessel HMS Bulwark expects to have rescued more than 1,000 migrants by the end of today.
ITV News' Carl Dinnen reports that 378 people were rescued from just one wooden boat this morning in the sea off Libya.
The crew have also rescued people from six inflatable boats and a seventh that was picked up by the Italian Coast Guard.
Britain is a country that "doesn't walk on by", David Cameron said as HMS Bulwark undertook another rescue mission off the coast of Libya.
Arriving at the G7 summit in Germany, the Prime Minister said the flagship had been deployed because Britain is a "country with a conscience".
"HMS Bulwark, the Royal Navy flagship, is in the Mediterranean because we want to save lives," Cameron said.
But he warned, "We need to deal with the causes of this migration, not simply with its consequences."
HMS Bulwark has begun a rescue mission to save at least 500 migrants found in four boats in the seas off Libya.
"From first light this morning, a Merlin helicopter from 814 Squadron onboard HMS Bulwark has been conducting surveillance operations and has identified four migrant vessels in distress, containing a total of at least 500 people," a Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said.
"HMS Bulwark has now commenced rescue operations to recover those in the vessels."
It is estimated that more than 1,600 people have drowned so far this year trying to make the crossing.
